A new photocatalytic platform for the bulk production of hydrogen has been developed by a research group headed by Professor Taeghwan Hyeon at the Center for Nanoparticle Research within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in Seoul, South Korea.
The service life of marine steel structures is significantly impacted by metal corrosion. The conventional cathodic protection method requires a significant amount of energy and metal resources.
At the University of Bayreuth, scientists present new electrospun nonwovens in “Science Advances” that display an exceptional combination of extremely low thermal conductivity and high electrical conductivity.
A new topological phase in a two-dimensional system has been discovered by scientists at Cambridge University. This can be used as a new platform for examining topological physics in nanoscale devices.
3E Nano, a technology start-up poised to disrupt the window market, is pleased to announce it secured a US$4 million Series Seed funding round.
Owing to the global trend of utilizing electric vehicles, there has been a surge in demand for next-generation secondary batteries with higher capacity and faster charging than the lithium-ion batteries currently in use.
A biological approach that creates metal nanoclusters with the electroactive bacterium Geobacter sulfurreducens could offer an economical and sustainable solution to high-performance catalyst synthesis for wide range of applications like water splitting.
In recent times, the conjugated dual size effect of core-shell bimetallic nanocatalysts was revealed for the first time with the activity of the catalysts increasing with the core size in the benzyl alcohol oxidation reaction.
Several studies have predicted that the water splitting reaction could be catalysed by certain groups of 2D materials – each measuring just a few atoms thick.
A recent review article published in the journal Nano Research Energy provides an overview of the evolution and synthesis of borophene.
