'Throwaway economy' thwarting climate goals: report
19/01/2022 - Countries are neglecting the massive impact of the "throwaway" economy on planet-warming emissions, according to research published Wednesday that calculated more than half a trillion tonnes of...
Advanced algorithms plus exceptional X-ray laser reveal structures of not-so-neat-and-tidy materials
19/01/2022 - Francis Crick, who famously co-discovered the shape of DNA, once said: "If you want to understand function, study structure." Many decades later, this remains a tenet of biology, chemistry, and...
Using 3D printing for alloy materials innovation
19/01/2022 - While millions of people around the world enjoy renewed mobility from hip and knee replacements, many don't realize that the materials used in such implants have basically stayed the same since the...
Taming of a shape-shifter molecule
18/01/2022 - Shape-shifter molecules are in never-ending motion. Their structure fluctuates because the carbon bonds that hold them together constantly break up and form again. Researchers have now found a way to...
Bone growth inspired 'microrobots' that can create their own bone
17/01/2022 - Inspired by the growth of bones in the skeleton, researchers at the universities of Linköping in Sweden and Okayama in Japan have developed a combination of materials that can morph into various...
Fuzzy molecular threesome is basis of gene expression
16/01/2022 - Specific nuclear proteins act as a glue to pack genetic material in an absurdly small space in the human body. Proteins "gluing" DNA are called linker histones, and hold their secret in their...
Turning harmful CO2 into useful chemicals
13/01/2022 - Making important raw materials for fine chemicals out of carbon dioxide really works. As part of the Max Planck collaborative project eBioCO2n, a team of researchers from Fraunhofer IGB have...
A well-known iron-based magnet is also a potential quantum information material
13/01/2022 - Scientists pursuing better performance in a well-known type of iron-based magnet also discovered wide-gap semiconducting behavior and a quantum state useful for quantum information processing—all...
A treasure map for the realm of electrocatalysts
13/01/2022 - High entropy alloys (HEAs) are chemically complex materials made up of mixtures of five or more elements. What's interesting about them is that they offer completely new possibilities for the...
Rubber material holds key to long-lasting, safer EV batteries
12/01/2022 - For electric vehicles (EVs) to become mainstream, they need cost-effective, safer, longer-lasting batteries that won't explode during use or harm the environment. Researchers at the Georgia Institute...
Molecular paddlewheels propel sodium ions through next-generation batteries
12/01/2022 - Materials scientists at Duke University have revealed paddlewheel-like molecular dynamics that help push sodium ions through a quickly evolving class of solid-state batteries. The insights should...
New catalytic approach directly converts raw biomass into natural gas with low carbon footprint
11/01/2022 - Natural gas can be used as fuel for generating electricity, heating and powering transportation. It is also the raw material to manufacture hydrogen and ammonia.
Mimicking nature to obtain more efficient, cleaner, and cheaper chemical compounds
11/01/2022 - A team from the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), in collaboration with the University of La Laguna (ULL), has developed a new methodology that, by imitating the photosynthesis of plants,...
Circular Dichroism beamline provides breakthrough in mapping chiral materials
11/01/2022 - A European research group has developed an exciting new imaging method on Diamond Light Source's beamline B23 that could improve the characterisation of chiral molecules in pharmaceuticals and other...
New materials for extremely high-efficiency perovskite solar cells
11/01/2022 - A group of chemists from Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), Lithuania synthesized materials that were used for constructing a record-breaking perovskite solar module, with an efficiency of 21.4...
From 2D to 3D: How to inflate shapes via machine learning
11/01/2022 - Research by King's Lecturer in Engineering, Dr. Antonio Forte, is investigating ways of working with soft robots to allow them to morph from two to three dimensions. This paves the way for devices...
Common clay materials may help curb methane emissions
10/01/2022 - Methane is a far more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, and it has a pronounced effect within first two decades of its presence in the atmosphere. In the recent international climate...
