Study Results Establish Principles of Predicting Trend for Promoting or Suppressing Oxidation of Materials

Study Results Establish Principles of Predicting Trend for Promoting or Suppressing Oxidation of Materials

With documented public water issues caused by corrosion in Hoosick Falls, New York, and Flint, Michigan, it is necessary to know the impact of corrosion on copper at the atomic level so that such issues can be avoided in future pipes. Corrosion-related damage costs represent 3% of the US Gross Domestic Product (roughly $503.1 billion, as per the values in 2013). [More]

Researchers Tune Hardness in Pure Calcite Using Amino Acids

Researchers Tune Hardness in Pure Calcite Using Amino Acids

Pure calcite is a weak, fragile mineral that is generally present in chalk. As such, construction engineers do not prefer to use this mineral as a building material. However, if calcite is reinforced by a factor of two or more, similar to the way a mollusk has done to protect itself from predators through an evolutionary process, it could be a suitable building material.

UC San Diego Chemists Create Adaptive Protein Crystal

UC San Diego Chemists Create Adaptive Protein Crystal

UC San Diego chemists have produced an ‘adaptive protein crystal’ that possesses a unique counterintuitive property, which could be useful in designing body armors and soles of running shoes. When the material is stretched in a single direction, it thickens in the perpendicular direction instead of thinning, as seen in common materials, and when the material is compressed in one dimension, it reduces in the other dimension instead of expanding and becomes thicker during the process.
