Firefighting may appear very different in the future, due to intelligent fire suits and masks created by numerous research institutions in China.
The mechanism of the coverage-driven selectivity shift from ethylene to acetate in high-rate CO2/CO electrolysis has been unraveled by a research team headed by Profs. Xinhe Bao, Guoxiong Wang, and Dunfeng Gao from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).
A team of researchers led by Young-Shin Jun at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis found that nanoplastics facilitate formation of manganese oxide on polystyrene nanoparticles.
A University of Minnesota Twin Cities-led team of scientists and engineers has developed a new method for making thin films of perovskite oxide semiconductors, a class of "smart" materials with unique properties that can change in response to stimuli like light, magnetic fields, or electric fields.
Carnegie Mellon University's Yongxin (Leon) Zhao and the Chinese University of Hong Kong's Shih-Chi Chen have a big idea for manufacturing nanodevices.
A pressing quest in the field of nanoelectronics is the search for a material that could replace silicon. Graphene has seemed promising for decades.
Water and wood could one day be all that is required to power a household. Scientists in Sweden have developed a method to produce electricity from these two renewable resources at a time when energy is a crucial issue for several millions of people globally.
The electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) to carbon monoxide (CO) has great potential for eliminating CO2 from the atmosphere to lessen pollution and for providing alternative energy with carbon monoxide as a component.
Modern precious metal catalysts are regarded to be expensive and inefficient compared to carbon-based electrocatalysts. Heteroatom doping can simply create highly active catalytic centers, but it also results in poorer electronic conductivity, impeding electrocatalysis.
According to a paper published in Chemical Engineering Journal recently, a team from the High Magnetic Field Laboratory (HMFL), Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, successfully designed a safe and efficient nanotorpedo for the delivery of chemotherapeutic drugs.
