Clean carbon nanotubes with superb properties

Single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) have found many uses in electronics and new touch screen devices. Carbon nanotubes are sheets of one atom-thick layer of graphene rolled up seamlessly into different sizes and shapes. ...

Economizing on iridium

Iridium is an ideal catalyst for the electrolytic production of hydrogen from water—but it is extremely expensive. But now a new kind of electrode made of highly porous material does an excellent job with just a hint of ...

Super-strong magnetic supercrystals can assemble themselves

Materials scientists who work with nano-sized components have developed ways of working with their vanishingly small materials. But what if you could get your components to assemble themselves into different structures without ...

New 3-D printing technique for biomaterials

A new way of 3-D printing soft materials such as gels and collagens offers a major step forward in the manufacture of artificial medical implants.

New smart materials to tackle global challenges

Understanding how natural materials are created has helped a Griffith University research team create a smart material platform to aid in the creation of new drugs and even help in the clean-up of polluted environments.

A stretchable and flexible biofuel cell that runs on sweat

A unique new flexible and stretchable device, worn against the skin and capable of producing electrical energy by transforming the compounds present in sweat, was recently developed and patented by CNRS researchers from l"Université ...
