Next-Generation Composites May Monitor Their Own Structural Health

Carbon fiber composites—lightweight and strong—are great structural materials for automobiles, aircraft and other transportation vehicles. They consist of a polymer matrix, such as epoxy,...

Graphene oxide ‘smart’ material with potential biomedical, environmental uses

Brown University researchers have shown a way to use graphene oxide (GO) to add some backbone to hydrogel materials made from alginate, a natural...

Alternative for petroleum polycarbonate

The Korea Research Institute of Chemical Technology (KRICT) has developed a bio-polycarbonate which has been monopolized by Japan, and has opened up the possibility...

New synthesis method yields degradable polymers

Materials could be useful for delivering drugs or imaging agents in the body; may offer alternative to some industrial plastics. MIT chemists have devised a...

Study unlocks full potential of graphene

New research reveals why the “supermaterial” graphene has not transformed electronics as promised, and shows how to double its performance and finally harness its...

New ultralight material offers many uses for plastic waste

The National University of Singapore team said it had found a way to convert bottles made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET) into aerogels that have...
