Organic, Environmentally Friendly Material for Thin, Flexible Display Screens

Organic, Environmentally Friendly Material for Thin, Flexible Display Screens

Researchers at the Tel Aviv University have developed a novel DNA-peptide structure that could be used for production of thin, transparent, and flexible digital displays. Present day screens are made up of a number of rigid layers. The new structure harnesses bionanotechnology for enabling a single pliable pixel layer to emit a full range of colors. [More]
New Book on ‘Polymers from Plant Oils’ Released by Smithers Rapra

New Book on ‘Polymers from Plant Oils’ Released by Smithers Rapra

This book provides an update on the field of polymers derived from vegetable oils. It highlights the remarkable progress achieved in all aspects of the discipline over the last decade, ranging from direct exploitation of triglycerides to their conversion into novel monomeric species and their polymerisation (including the properties and potential applications of the ensuing materials).
