Atomic Steps Can Slow Surface Oxidation of Metal Surfaces

Atomic Steps Can Slow Surface Oxidation of Metal Surfaces

Rust never sleeps. Whether a reference to the 1979 Neil Young album or a product designed to protect metal surfaces, the phrase invokes the idea that corrosion from oxidation -- the more general chemical name for rust and other reactions of metal with oxygen -- is an inevitable, persistent process. But a new Binghamton University study reveals that certain features of metal surfaces can stop the process of oxidation in its tracks. [More]

Pioneer in Nanoporous Carbon Study Named AAAS Fellow

Pioneer in Nanoporous Carbon Study Named AAAS Fellow

Nanotechnology is the study and engineering of matter and microscopic structures. These tiny systems continue to gain interest for their promise and commercial application. Henry C. "Hank" Foley, a researcher and administrator at the University of Missouri, is a pioneer in the study of nanoporous carbon, or tiny membranes and systems that allow energy sources to pass through or become stored in these structures. His analysis and scholarship in nanosystems and how they are composed continues to inform research fields of study including medicine, materials processing, energy and the environment. [More]
