Palaeontologists describe a preservation process unique to resins

A team of paleontologists described two amber pieces found in sites in Teruel (Spain) with remains from vertebrates corresponding to the Early Cretaceous. Both pieces have their origins in the same conservation process of ...

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 ...

New materials help expand volumetric 3-D printing

Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have adapted a new class of materials for their groundbreaking volumetric 3-D printing method that produces objects nearly instantly, greatly expanding the range ...

Researchers extract DNA from insects embedded in resin

For the first time, Senckenberg scientist Mónica Solórzano-Kraemer, together with lead authors David Peris and Kathrin Janssen of the University of Bonn and additional colleagues from Spain and Norway, successfully extracted ...

An enhanced ruthenium-based catalyst for primary amine synthesis

Researchers at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) have developed a high-performance reusable ruthenium-based catalyst for the production of primary amines. Their method represents a major advance for the development ...

Researchers 3-D print tiny multicolor microstructures

Researchers have developed an automated 3-D printing method that can produce multicolor 3-D microstructures using different materials. The new method could be used to make a variety of optical components including optical ...

Bio-based resin: A breakthrough in rapid prototyping

Lithuanian researchers from Kaunas University of Technology and Vilnius University synthesized and tested a bio-based resin for optical 3-D printing (O3DP). The bio-based resin made from renewable raw materials proved to ...

How plantains and carbon nanotubes can improve cars

A luxury automobile is not really a place to look for something like sisal, hemp, or wood. Yet automakers have been using natural fibers for decades. Some high-end sedans and coupes use these in composite materials for interior ...
