Locked MOFs are the key to high porosity

A highly porous metal organic framework, assembled from molecular building blocks designed to lock together in a specific orientation, has been developed by researchers at KAUST.

Lab explores new resins for light-based 3-D printing

A Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) team has simulated the cross-linking of 3-D-printed polymer networks, a key step toward developing new functional resins for light-based 3-D-printing techniques including two-photon ...

Engineering living 'scaffolds' for building materials

When the inside of a mollusk shell shimmers in sunlight, the iridescence isn't produced by colored pigments but by tiny physical structures self-assembled from living cells and inorganic components. Now, a team of researchers ...

Atomic view of nature's amazing molecular machines at work

Researchers from the MPSD's Department of Atomically Resolved Dynamics at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science, the Centre for Ultrafast Imaging (all in Hamburg), the University of Toronto in Canada and the ETH in Zurich, ...

Tuneable emissive organic platform

NUS chemists have developed design guidelines for a type of material platform which can activate and adjust the light emission ability of organic molecules for lighting and display applications.
