New ‘hyper glue’ formula developed

With many of the products we use every day held together by adhesives, researchers from UBC’s Okanagan campus and the University of Victoria hope...

This thermoplastic is learning a new trick: Walking

https://media.eurekalert.org/multimedia_prod/pub/media/218087_web.mp4 This video illustrates the role of the association process in devising a locomotive robot that ''learns'' to walk by irradiation. The LCN-based robot is...

3D Printed Resistors From Electrically Conductive Filament

In a paper entitled “Characterization of resistors created by fused filament fabrication using electrically-conductive filament,” a pair of researchers 3D prints resistors using electrically...

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,...

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...

‘Magnetic topological insulator’ makes its own magnetic field

A team of U.S. and Korean physicists has found the first evidence of a two-dimensional material that can become a magnetic topological insulator even...
