New environmental cleanup technology rids oil from water

A new technology that is easy to manufacture and uses commercially available materials makes it possible to continuously remove oils and other pollutants from water, representing a potential tool for environmental cleanup.

Functional packaging with less material

Much of the food sold in our grocery stores are packaged to avoid that substances like oxygen get in contact with the food and decompose it. It is of great importance to know which parameters that decide the permeability ...

World record achieved in pore-scale flow simulations

An interdisciplinary research team, coordinated by Dr. Keijo Mattila from the University of Jyväskylä (JYU), Finland, has set a new world record in the field of fluid flow simulations in the pore scale (through porous materials). ...

Faster, finer filtration

The right blend of polymers enables rapid and molecule-selective filtering of tiny particles from water.

First 'porous liquid' invented

Scientists at Queen's University Belfast have made a major breakthrough by making a porous liquid - with the potential for a massive range of new technologies including 'carbon capture'.

Science provides new way to peer into pores

Rice University scientists led a project to "see" and measure the space in porous materials, even if that space is too small or fragile for traditional microscopes.

Chemists characterize 3-D macroporous hydrogels

Carnegie Mellon University chemists have developed two novel methods to characterize 3-dimensional macroporous hydrogels—materials that hold great promise for developing "smart" responsive materials that can be used for ...
