Gurpreet Singh, assistant professor of mechanical and nuclear engineering at Kansas State University and his student researchers are the first to demonstrate that a composite ‘paper’ made of interleaved molybdenum disulfide and graphene nanosheets can be both an active material to efficiently store sodium atoms and a flexible current collector. The idea is a new […]






Researchers have developed a low-temperature process converting plastic waste into liquid fuel as a way to re-use discarded plastic bags and other products.  The most common waste we all see world wide is the common polymer, low-density polyethylene (LDPE), which is used to make many types of containers, medical and laboratory equipment, computer components and, […]






Nano technology experts from the Stanford School of Engineering and from Denmark’s Aarhus University have found how to liberate hydrogen from water on an industrial scale by using an old catalyst, molybdenum sulfide, for electrolysis. With the new engineering molybdenum sulfide would be an efficient and environmentally friendly catalyst for the production of molecular hydrogen […]






A Virginia Tech research team has developed an organic biobattery based on sugar and has an unmatched energy density.  The development that could replace conventional batteries with ones those are cheaper, refillable, and biodegradable. Y.H. Percival Zhang, an associate professor of biological systems engineering in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and the College […]






A new approach developed at MIT uses sunlight to heat a high-temperature material whose infrared radiation would then be collected by a conventional photovoltaic cell that could generate power from sunlight efficiently and on demand.  The MIT researchers expect the technique could also make it easier to store the energy for later use. The new […]
