New promising nanogel separates chemicals continuously

Nanomaterials scientists from Utrecht University have improved a nanogel in such a way that it can now transport individual molecules from one liquid to the other. "By enlarging the surface area between two liquids, we can ...

Nanobubbles provide pathway to build better medical devices

Researchers from the University of Sydney Nano Institute and School of Chemistry have revealed that tiny gas bubbles—nanobubbles just 100 billionths of a meter high—form on surfaces in unexpected situations, providing ...

Scientists develop novel 'shapeshifting' liquid crystal

Physicists at Case Western Reserve University and Tufts University say they've changed the shape of a flat liquid crystal surface without applying any local stimulus—essentially remotely altering its physical appearance ...
