Vanadium Dioxide (VO2), a substance used in electronics, has been shown by EPFL researchers to be capable of “remembering” the whole history of prior external stimuli.
In a paper recently published in the open-access journal Materials, researchers carried out a scientometric review of the applications of coconut fibers in cementitious concrete to explore several aspects of the corresponding literature. The team recovered 235 published studies and their bibliometric data from the Scorpus dataset and analyzed them using the VOSviewer application.
For both energy and environmental issues, researchers are interested in the photocatalytic water splitting process. Using light energy and a catalyst, water is divided into oxygen and hydrogen in this process.
The secret to lossless current flow is superconductors. However, the development of superconducting diodes has only lately emerged as a crucial area for basic research.
In a paper recently published in the journal Polymers, researchers aimed to develop an active polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and corn starch-based thermoplastic starch (TPS) film to be used in food packaging equipped with the antioxidant and antimicrobial properties of watermelon rind extract combined with a glycerol plasticizer.
A paper recently published in the journal ACS Applied Electronic Materials reviewed the use of iron disulfide/pyrite in solar cells to improve their efficiency.
A new study in Sustainability has reviewed the applications of biochar for pharmaceutical pollutant removal strategies.
A team of researchers recently published a paper in the journal Environmental Research that comprehensively reviewed cellulase enzyme-producing marine actinobacteria in the context of bioenergy generation.
Scientists from Donghua University in Shanghai’s College of Materials Science and Engineering have presented a comprehensive and timely review of the uses of silk fibroin as a biomaterial. Their findings have appeared online in a pre-proof paper in the journal Materials Today Bio.
When exposed to sunlight, a transparent protective coating material that can self-heal in 30 minutes has been created.
