Composites news

Congratulations to Prof M Stanley Whittingham.

Varying the spacing between twin boundaries can dramatically improve a metal's strength and the extent to which it strengthens when deformed.

A novel technique can produce films made from carbon nanotubes and a 2D material called MXene that can block electromagnetic interference.

Scientists have combined silk proteins with carbon nanotubes to produce a composite material for use in flexible electronics and biomedical devices.

Set lasers to "cure" for Spot-welding of composites

A novel ceramic-metal composite that can handle high heat and pressure makes an effective material for producing solar power heat exchangers.

Electronic skin that heals itself after damage just like human skin could now be possible, according to new research.

Smart nanoparticles provide a new technology for targeted drug delivery by distinguishing the intrinsic characteristics between cancer and normal tissues.

hybrid material based on transition metal selenide could be a nonprecious metal alternative electrocatalyst for hydrogen generation

Composite contains polymer component to protect metal hydride filler from exposure to air and moisture for stable hydrogen storage.

Treating two-dimensional boron nitride with a superacid helps it to bind with other materials, including nanoparticles and graphene.

Novel composite membrane floats on top of the surface of water, absorbs sunlight, and produces vapor for clean water or to produce electricity.

Conductive, ecoresorbable inks used in 3D printing to form circuits, inductive antennas, sensors and implantable electronic medical devices.

Iron-based metal-organic framework (MOF) has microwave-absorbing properties.

Using a novel additive manufacturing process, scientists have been able to produce ultra-thin, ultra-smooth polyamide membranes for desalination.

Multi-material smart material prototype based on seed coat of some plants.

Synthetic biology protein and polymer building blocks are used to construct ‘smart’ materials systems that can perceive and process information.

The puzzle-like wavy structure of the seed coat found in some grasses could hold the secret to creating smart materials that are both flexible and strong.

Fire-resistant wallpaper based on inorganic nanowires and graphene oxide (GO) thermal sensors sounds an alarm in the event of fire.
