Origami could lead to exotic materials, tiny transformers (8/21/2014)

Embracing the pleats, creases and tucks of the Japanese art of decorative paper folding, Cornell University researchers are uncovering how origami principles could lead to exotic materials, soft robots and even tiny transformers. Publishing online in the journal Science Aug. 8. ...> Full Article


Researchers uncover novel process for creation of fuel and chemical compounds (8/20/2014)

A team of researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has identified the genes and enzymes that create a promising compound -- the 19 carbon furan-containing fatty acid (19Fu-FA). The compound has a variety of potential uses as a biological alternative for compounds currently derived from fossil fuels. ...> Full Article


Diamond defect interior design (8/20/2014)

Diamond defect interior designBy carefully controlling the position of an atomic-scale diamond defect within a volume smaller than what some viruses would fill, researchers have cleared a path toward better quantum computers and nanoscale sensors. They describe their technique in a paper published in the journal Applied Physics Letters, from AIP Publishing. ...> Full Article


Watching chemistry in motion: Chemical environments mapped using molecular vibrations (8/19/2014)

Watching chemistry in motion: Chemical environments mapped using molecular vibrationsScientists have long known that a molecule's behavior depends on its environment. Taking advantage of this phenomenon, a group of researchers at the University of Chicago developed a new technique to map microscopic environments using the vibrations of molecules. ...> Full Article


New material structures bend like microscopic hair (8/19/2014)

Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineers have fabricated a new elastic material coated with microscopic, hairlike structures that tilt in response to a magnetic field. ...> Full Article


3-D printing finds its 'sweet spot' through 'nifty shades of gray' (8/18/2014)

A 'less is more' approach has enabled UK engineers to make 3-D printed parts lighter and stronger, using methods that will also make 3-D printing faster and more economical. ...> Full Article


A protecting umbrella against oxygen (8/18/2014)

A protecting umbrella against oxygenIn the development of fuel cells the effort of generations of scientist and engineers have led to efficient and stable catalysts based on noble metals. These catalysts have reached the required threshold in terms of performance for applications such as electric cars. However, the high costs of the scarce noble metals render their widespread application economically less viable. ...> Full Article


How science sizzles in the modern kitchen (8/17/2014)

Some of the world's finest chemists don't wear lab coats. Instead, they don aprons and toques, and masterfully meld their passion for cooking with an awareness of the science behind the culinary arts. A group of prominent chefs, authors and culinary educators will speak on the topic in San Francisco on Sunday, Aug. 10, from 9 a.m. until noon, at the 248th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society. ...> Full Article


New material allows for ultra-thin solar cells (8/17/2014)

New material allows for ultra-thin solar cellsScientists at the Vienna University of Technology have managed to combine two semiconductor materials, consisting of only three atomic layers each. This new structure holds great promise for a new kinds of solar cell. ...> Full Article

Chemists develop MRI technique for peeking inside battery-like devices (8/15/2014)

A team of chemists from NYU and the University of Cambridge has developed a method for examining the inner workings of battery-like devices called supercapacitors, which can be charged up extremely quickly and can deliver high electrical power. ...> Full Article


'Active' surfaces control what's on them (8/15/2014)

Researchers at MIT and in Saudi Arabia have developed a new way of making surfaces that can actively control how fluids or particles move across them. The work might enable new kinds of biomedical or microfluidic devices, or solar panels that could automatically clean themselves of dust and grit. ...> Full Article


Neutron tomography technique reveals phase fractions of crystalline materials in 3-dimensions (8/14/2014)

Neutron tomography technique reveals phase fractions of crystalline materials in 3-dimensionsResearchers at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and The University of Tennessee Knoxville developed a novel method, based on energy-selective neutron imaging for visualization of crystalline phase distributions within the bulk of metallic samples. ...> Full Article


Chemists demonstrate 'bricks-and-mortar' assembly of new molecular structures (8/14/2014)

Chemists demonstrate 'bricks-and-mortar' assembly of new molecular structuresChemists at Indiana University Bloomington have described the self-assembly of large, symmetrical molecules in bricks-and-mortar fashion, a development with potential value for the field of organic electronic devices such as field-effect transistors and photovoltaic cells. ...> Full Article


Nature inspires a greener way to make colorful plastics (8/13/2014)

Long before humans figured out how to create colors, nature had already perfected the process -- think stunning, bright butterfly wings of many different hues, for example. Now scientists are tapping into those secrets to develop a more environmentally friendly way to make colored plastics. Their paper on using structure -- or the shapes and architectures of materials -- rather than dyes, to produce color appears in the ACS journal Nano Letters. ...> Full Article
