EU researchers extensively characterised the self-organisation of nanotubes and developed novel compositions particularly appropriate to solar energy conversion applications.
Borrowing from nature is an age-old theme in science. Form and function go hand-in-hand in the natural world and the structures created by plants and animals are only rarely improved on by humans.
Zeolites are porous materials with perfectly regular pores and high surface area that can act as molecular sieves. This property has led to important applications including the purification of air or water such as the contaminated ...
Hydrocarbons continue to be our primary source of energy. However, they do not necessarily have to come from fossil sources. Why not reverse the combustion process to make the hydrocarbons from CO2? This could be achieved ...
Enhanced yet affordable material for supercapacitors: Mass production of 3D mesoporous graphene nano-balls
Korean Researchers from Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) developed a new method to massively synthesize enhanced yet affordable materials for supercapacitors.
A new ultralight silver nanowire aerogel could be a boost to the energy and electronics industries.
(Phys.org)—Northwestern University researchers have broken a world record by creating two new synthetic materials with the greatest amount of surface areas reported to date.
