At Stockholm University, scientists have come up with a resource-efficient technique to generate new lignin-based materials that can be reprocessed thermally and further utilized to replace adhesives and thermosetting resins.
Researchers have presented a study in the journal Water Energy Nexus for the structural characterization of the organic compound polymeric chitosan in order to consider its application potential.
Recently, a team of researchers has developed extraordinarily high-strength silica-modified carbon aerogels (SCAs) prepared with facile sol-gel polymerization followed by ambient pressure drying and carbonization. The research was published in the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science.
A group of researchers from Belgium and the Netherlands have analyzed the quantity and quality of plastic packaging, the efficiency of their collection system, and the sorting of those plastic waste factions in the European Union.
In an effort to limit the quantity of plastic pollution in the environment, the number of citizen science clean-up programs, such as beach clean-ups, has expanding globally.
Broad-based scientific team from government, academia and industry joins forces to identify new opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of polyurethane -; one of the most widely used but little recycled plastic materials.
Researchers have developed many materials in recent decades to deliver medications locally and over long periods of time. These polymers, known as drug-delivery systems, offer significant safety benefits by permitting on-target drug exposure while reducing side effects and the cost of treatment.
Comprehensive research published in the journal Advanced Materials has focused on the utilization and challenges of natural polymers in the field of soft electronics.
