Composites

News
 

A composite made of lignin, nylon and carbon fiber possesses just the right mix of viscosity when hot and strength when cool for 3D printing.

News
 

A new nanocomposite anode material can produce lithium-ion batteries that are more suitable for use in large devices such as electric vehicles.

News
 

A novel fuel cell catalyst comprising cobalt-platinum alloy nanoparticles on a composite substrate uses much less platinum than current catalysts.

News
 

Oscillating loads at certain frequencies can lead to several-fold increases in the strength of composites that contain a molecular layer of ‘nanoglue’.
