Metal catalysts are widely used in the production of drugs, dyes, adhesives, and plastics. Researchers have now discovered an intriguing property of nickel as a catalyst
RUDN University engineers have shown that theoretical calculations traditionally used to describe the compression of metal work pieces, do not take into account an important property of materials.
Photocatalysis, which can convert solar power to chemical energy, offers a green sustainable route for resolving the serious energy crisis and environmental pollutions.
Xometry's updated Fusion 360 app features instant manufacturability feedback and multiple part upload capabilities along with pricing and lead time estimates
Recently, the use of photocatalysts to lessen carbon dioxide has received plenty of attention.
The faster development of nuclear power on a global scale has led to a continuous increase in the demand for uranium. Thus, huge amounts of uranium-containing wastewater are produced across the nuclear fuel cycle as well as at the time of spent fuel reprocessing.
Combining additive manufacturing, or 3D printing with new sustainable materials, allows for a more flexible and resource-efficient production.
At the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, a group of researchers has shone new light on molecules that tend to alter their shape in response to light.
Scott Chambers creates layered structures of thin metal oxide films and studies their properties, creating materials not found in nature.
PPPL and Princeton University demonstrate a novel technique for overcoming a barrier to the application of stronger-than-steel graphene for a vast array of industrial and scientific uses.
Combining sunflower pollen with printer toner, scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore have developed a paper-like material that is able to fold itself into new shapes in response to environmental humidity.
Kazan Federal University and OFS found a mechanism of degradation of carbon coating under extreme conditions.
A sensational new solar material known as organic-inorganic halide perovskites could soon enable the United States to realize its solar goals and decarbonize the power grid. Perovskite solar materials are one thousand times thinner than silicon and can be altered to respond to various colors of the solar spectrum just by changing their composition mix.
Many substances around us, from table salt and sugar to most metals, are arranged into crystals. Because their molecules are laid out in an orderly, repetitive pattern, much is understood about their structure.
An insulator of sulfur and selenium made with flexible devices in mind may have found its true destiny: As an anticorrosive coating for steel.
