Trees go high-tech: Process turns cellulose into energy storage devices (4/19/2014)

Trees go high-tech: Process turns cellulose into energy storage devicesA fundamental chemical discovery should allow tress to soon play a major role in making high-tech energy storage devices. A method has been discovered to turn cellulose -- the most abundant organic polymer on Earth and a key component of trees -- into the building blocks for supercapacitors. ...> Full Article


Organic solar cells more efficient with molecules face-to-face (4/19/2014)

Organic solar cells more efficient with molecules face-to-faceNew research from North Carolina State University and UNC-Chapel Hill reveals that energy is transferred more efficiently inside of complex, three-dimensional organic solar cells when the donor molecules align face-on, rather than edge-on, relative to the acceptor. This finding may aid in the design and manufacture of more efficient and economically viable organic solar cell technology. ...> Full Article


Chemists' work with small peptide chains may revolutionize study of enzymes and diseases (4/18/2014)

Chemists' work with small peptide chains may revolutionize study of enzymes and diseasesChemists in Syracuse University's College of Arts and Sciences have, for the first time, created enzyme-like activity using peptides that are only seven amino acids long. ...> Full Article


Researchers open path to finding rare, polarized metals (4/17/2014)

Researchers open path to finding rare, polarized metalsDrexel University researchers are turning some of the basic tenets of chemistry and physics upside down to cut a trail toward the discovery of a new set of materials. They're called 'polar metals' and, according to many of the scientific principles that govern the behavior of atoms, they probably shouldn't exist. ...> Full Article


Tiny crystals to boost solar (4/16/2014)

Tiny crystals to boost solarA new approach to studying solar panel absorber materials has been developed by researchers in France, Acta Cryst. (2014). B70, 390. The technique could accelerate the development of non-toxic and readily available alternatives to current absorbers in thin film based solar cells. ...> Full Article

Europium complexes emit red light at record efficiency (4/16/2014)

Europium complexes emit red light at record efficiencyResearchers worldwide continue search for better luminescent materials for OLED manufacturing. Two new compounds with europium complexes developed at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw display in their class record high luminescence efficiencies in red, and their properties enable faster, low cost manufacturing of thin OLED films. ...> Full Article


Next-generation coatings and sensors that can operate in extreme conditions (4/15/2014)

Tata Steel has formed a strategic partnership with the prominent UK research body, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, to develop a range of innovations that will include graphene-coated steels and next-generation sensors that can operate in extreme environments.The research will include studying the viability of coating steel strip with graphene, a one atom thick carbon layer whose properties include anti-corrosion and a high degree of electrical conductivity. ...> Full Article


New gel allows for targeted therapy after heart attack (4/14/2014)

New gel allows for targeted therapy after heart attackEach patient responds to heart attacks differently and damage can vary from one part of the heart muscle to another. Penn researchers have now developed a way to address this variation via a material that can be applied directly to damaged heart tissue. ...> Full Article

International team using shape memory alloys to rehab concrete structuresA team of researchers from University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering and Qatar University has won a $779,000 grant to develop a new way to rehabilitate deteriorating reinforced concrete structures. The three-year grant, from the Qatar National Research Fund, goes to a team led by UH civil and environmental engineering assistant professor Mina Dawood. ...> Full Article


Hybrid vehicles more fuel efficient in India, China than in US (4/13/2014)

What makes cities in India and China so frustrating to drive in -- heavy traffic, aggressive driving style, few freeways -- makes them ideal for saving fuel with hybrid vehicles, according to new research by scientists at the US Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. In a pair of studies using real-world driving conditions, they found that hybrid cars are significantly more fuel-efficient in India and China than they are in the United States. ...> Full Article


Heat-conducting polymer cools hot electronic devices at 200 degrees C (4/12/2014)

Heat-conducting polymer cools hot electronic devices at 200 degrees CBy harnessing an electropolymerization process to produce aligned arrays of polymer nanofibers, researchers have developed a thermal interface material able to conduct heat 20 times better than the original polymer. The material can operate at up to 200 degrees Celsius. ...> Full Article
