Polymer nanocomposites are used in a wide range of applications, from automobile parts and tires to high-tech electronics and solar cells.
In drug-delivery research, finding a pharmaceutically active molecule is only half the battle: the drug must also be able to safely reach its target.
In a multidisciplinary effort, a team of University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers has identified a protein that is integral to the survival and self-renewal processes of human pluripotent stem cells (hPSC).
A team of researchers reports success in pioneering tests of a layered material with a lightweight metal matrix syntactic foam core that holds significant potential for automobiles, trains, ships, and other applications requiring ...
As anyone who's ever used a spreadsheet can attest, it's often convenient to organize data into tables. But in the age of big data, those tables can be enormous, with millions or even hundreds of millions of rows.
Researchers have demonstrated a new metal matrix composite that is so light that it can float on water. A boat made of such lightweight composites will not sink despite damage to its structure. The new material also promises ...
Mass spectrometry images provide a wonderful means of visualising molecules with high sensitivity, excellent specificity and in a label-free manner. They are rich in information and useful as a guide to the location of molecules ...
A Purdue University researcher and entrepreneur is commercializing her laboratory's innovative collagen formulations that self-assemble or polymerize to form fibrils that resemble those found in the body's tissues.
Layered nanocomposites containing tiny structures mixed into a polymer matrix are gaining commercial use, but their complex nature can hide defects that affect performance.
A paper in the journal Science and Technology of Advanced Materials explores what is preventing the reinforcing ability of carbon nanotubes from being used in a ceramic matrix.
