Nanoscale cover image Tulsa, OK – Oral Roberts University scientist Dr Enrique Valderrama-Araya, who, together with materials scientists from Brazil, China, UK and USA, developed a new hydrogen evolution reaction to explore the extent of dissolution of platinum nanoparticles at the surface of nanostructured carbon electrodes. The team’s research, recently published in Nanoscale, a high-impact …

Consumer electronics company Xiaomi Communications Co. appears to be the latest manufacturer to enter the electric mobility race. The Beijing-based company plans to create Xiaomi-branded electric vehicles. The company will use a Chinese manufacturing plant owned by Great Wall Motors. In its current state, Xiaomi is an electronics company based on an Internet of Things …

Are we finally going through the looking glass? If measured only by new breweries, maybe it does. Like everything else, however, the mini brewery renaissance among us did not come without pain. At the beginning of Annus horribilis 2020, a slew of new breweries were due to go live – in Riverhead, Bellport, Lindenhurst – …

Marie Curie Action Individual Fellowships are funded by the European Commission and are very competitive. This year, five researchers from around the world received money to come to Aalto to study in groups at the School of Science and the School of Chemical Engineering. Details of their projects are listed below. ENBIOMECH Dr Sandra Kaabel …

Scientists at Cornell University have developed a self-folding origami bird that is barely 60 microns wide. The bird is just one of the many little robots that roam Cornell’s labs. Someday, microscopic robots will be able to train themselves and get to work in all kinds of small spaces. Cornell University has just announced what …

Scientists began to evaluate the potential of graphene in polymers soon after the complete characterization of graphene. A first research objective focused on how to increase the electrical conductivity of graphene; this was soon followed by investigations into its mechanical properties. There were then descriptions of the improved flame retardancy and thermal conductivity of graphene …

Finnish and Israeli scientists have found a way to move the hinges at the nanoscale. This marks the next step in the development of what is called molecular machines. This will ultimately make it possible to develop new therapeutic approaches, for example in medicine. Until now, it was not possible to control this type of …

Catalysts are essential for many technologies. To further improve heterogeneous catalysts, it is necessary to analyze the complex processes at their surfaces, where the active sites are. Scientists at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), as well as colleagues from Spain and Argentina, have now achieved breakthroughs: as reported in Physical Review Letters, they use …
