New research reveals plausible degradation pathways of metallic gold into nanoparticles through unforeseen corrosion!
A active material for redox flow batteries was synthesized from fungi to create a renewable feedstock.
Research in wearable electronics brings us closer to personalized medicine with plasmonic materials.
A deeper understanding of spintronics enables the generation of new technologies using chiral molecules.
Greener materials and processes for fuels and explosives! Scientist demonstrate how to tune a class of porous materials that ignite spontaneously when mixed with acid.
Maybe chemistry can save us—in this case, synthetic chemists have developed a family of lanthanide-oxo molecules and investigate their capabilities as radical species scavengers, with a possible future in the clinic to mitigate various diseases onset by oxidative stress (get antioxidants into your diet, people!).
Enzymes and bacteria can be used to degrade plastics into chemicals useful for antibacterial coatings
Skin-conforming, ultra-thin wearable medical sensors could make going to the doctor less invasive than ever before. This newly developed, “tattooable” sensor uses a newly developed material to create one of the thinnest yet.
Paper: ECM-based microchannel for culturing in vitro vascular tissues with simultaneous perfusion and stretch Journal: Lab on a Chip Authors: Azusa Shimizu, Wei Huang Goh, Shun Itai, Michinao Hashimoto, Shigenori Miurad and Hiroaki Onoe Year: 2020 Featured Image: Jesus Leonardo Rondon Tapia–Creative Commons License Inflammation or…
Living tissues are mostly soft, but put them under a bit of stress, and they quickly become firm to prevent tissues from breaking. This property has been very difficult to imitate with synthetic tissues, but new research has finally bridged that gap.
A new study describes a semiconductor that is stretchable and degrades completely in acid – which can be used in next-generation electronics.
Water capture technology has made collecting water from the air a reality, but dry climates have always posed a challenge. New research takes us a step closer to providing fresh water in some of the driest places on Earth.
A more secure way to collect biometric data: this nanoparticle-based paper uses your sweat as an “invisible ink” for fingerprints!
Electrical circuits can be drawn, erased, and redrawn with ease on this new material that uses liquid metal particles suspended in a polymer network. Check out how it’s made and its potential uses in flexible electronics!
Switching to solar energy is one of the ways we can fight against climate change. Let’s learn how something as harmful as the greenhouse effect can be used to create better solar devices!
A research team in Saudi Arabia developed solar panels that clean the sea water whilst producing electricity.
