In a warming world, coal can often seem the "bad guy." But we can do other things with coal besides burn it. A team at Ohio University used the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center's Bridges-2 system to carry out a series of simulations showing how coal might eventually be converted to valuable - and carbon-neutral - materials like graphite and carbon nanotubes.
Researchers at RIKEN have successfully smuggled genetic material into the plant cells that produce energy, which makes it possible to induce plants to produce compounds that are beneficial for the industry.
A study published in Nano Research presented a straightforward method for porous carbon preparation, utilizing small organic molecules as precursors.
Efficient purification processes that separate impurities from air and water are necessary to sustain life on Earth.
To preserve life on earth, there need to be efficient purification methods that can separate impurities from water and air.
An article published in Nano Letters analyzed ssDNA-coated single-walled carbon nanotubes via ultraviolet (UV) absorption and measured the total carbon content.
A new study presents an efficient strategy to fabricate an ordered architecture of HNTs. The clay nanotubes were aligned on a glass substrate via a magnetic rotor-assisted drying of their aqueous dispersion
In a paper published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, fluorescence quenching was used to detect nitrite ions in processed meat products using a sensing system centered on doped carbon quantum dots.&...
A paper reported the integration of multi-walled carbon nanotubes in a flexible triblock copolymer framework using an azobenzene derivative and carboxylic acid patterning to construct lightweight and flexible solar thermal batteries.
An article published in The Journal of Physical Chemistry C discussed the inhomogeneity in individual AD multi-walled carbon nanotubes determined by Raman signal by extracting the inner layers of multi-walled carbon nanotubes during the sonication stage of the dispersion procedure.
