Cheap, flexible, wireless graphene communication devices such as mobile phones and healthcare monitors can be directly printed into clothing and even skin, University of Manchester academics have demonstrated.
The right blend of polymers enables rapid and molecule-selective filtering of tiny particles from water.
Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin have developed a first-of-its-kind self-healing gel that repairs and connects electronic circuits, creating opportunities to advance the ...
In the future, the wings of jets could be as light as balsa wood, yet stronger than the toughest metal alloys. That's the promise of nanocomposite materials.
Arranging polymer nanotubes in a vertical array enhances piezoelectric properties for acoustic sensors
An array of hollow piezoelectric polymer nanotubes grown by A*STAR researchers could be used as an extremely sensitive acoustic sensor.
New computational approach allows researchers to design cellulose nanocomposites with optimal properties
Theoretically, nanocellulose could be the next hot supermaterial.
Research by scientists at the University of York has revealed important new information about the dynamics of bacterial gels which could ultimately suggest new ways of helping prevent or better control diseases such as cystic ...
A new type of polymer can show that it has changed shape. After exposure to UV light, the chain-like molecules emit a different colour of light. This opens a new pathway for research into how viruses function in a cell and ...
