The AZoM.com "Materials Thought Leaders" series is a selection of articles that cover the key technology areas where materials are making an impact and where they will make an increasing impact. All the articles are written by experts who have been invited as recognised leaders in their fields to provide a "state of the art" contribution.
AZoM speaks with Dr. Nicola Ferralis from MIT about his research that has developed a low-cost process of creating carbon fibers from hydrocarbon pitch. This research could lead to the large-scale use of carbon fiber composites in industries that have thus far been limited.
Ahead of their talk on green chemistry and profitability in laboratory research at ChemUK 2022, AZoM spoke with Jacqueline Balian from Gambica and Martyn Fordman from Asynt about encouraging sustainability in the chemical industry.
This interview discusses the novel uses of end-of-life plastics in road construction.
AZoM spoke to David Anderson, a director at Score Diagnostics Ltd, about the role valve maintenance and diagnostics play in efforts to reduce emissions in the chemical industry and make industry as a whole greener.
AZoM spoke with Dr. Masatoshi Kondo from the Tokyo Institute of Technology about liquid metals and the corrosion of materials in fusion reactors at high temperatures.
AZoM spoke to Kevin Fernandes from Endress+Hauser about the significance of online Raman spectroscopy in industrial processes, as well as its potential role in emerging industries.
AZoM speaks with Anna Watkins about her business Uncommon Alchemy, which is developing an exciting novel textile material made from seaweed.
AZoM spoke to Jonathan Venditti from Klüber Lubrication about the significance of lubrication in chemical processes, and how a focus on these products can contribute toward greener industrial chemistry.
AZoM speaks to Dr. Spence Macdonald from ABOzymes about his discovery of a novel biopolymer, acholetin, synthesized from a bacterial enzyme.
AZoM speaks with Dr. Rajashekar Badam from JAIST about his recently formulated method for anode fabrication that could pave the way to the very fast charging of lithium-ion batteries.
