A range of technology minerals, which are an essential ingredient in everything from laptops and cell phones to hybrid or electric cars to solar panels and copper wiring for homes are going to become in short supply. Additionally, base metals like copper are also a matter of immense concern. An international team of researchers, led […]






Georgia Institute of Technology materials researchers have created a nanofiber that could help enable the next generation of rechargeable batteries and increase the efficiency of hydrogen production from water electrolysis. In a study published in Nature Communications and sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the researchers describe the development of double perovskite nanofiber that can […]






Manchester University scientists have revealed how arsenic molecules might be used to ‘fish out’ or clean up the most toxic elements from radioactive nuclear waste. This could be a breakthrough that could make the decommissioning industry even safer and more effective. If successful the method may reduce the public relations tension in fission driven nuclear […]






Researchers at Caltech and the Berkeley Lab have in just two years nearly doubled the number of materials known to have potential for use in solar fuels. Using a new high-throughput method of identifying new materials, a team of researchers led by Caltech’s John Gregoire and Berkeley Lab’s Jeffrey Neaton and Qimin Yan have found […]






Cornell University’s Geoffrey Coats has developed a multiblock polymer that, when added in small measure to a mix of polyethylene and polypropylene creates a new and mechanically tough polymer. Coates collaborated with a group from the University of Minnesota and together the team’s work is detailed in the paper “Combining Polyethylene and Polypropylene: Enhanced Performance […]
