SGL Carbon’s porous reactors can synthesize hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acids and destroy pollutants in industrial waste gases.
Label-free imaging of atherosclerotic plaques is achieved by an optical window between 1600-1850 nm for bond-selective deep tissue imaging.
A laminar composite of two common biomaterials – shrimp shells and silk – could be useful for packaging and biomedical applications.
Luminescent solar concentrators might hold the key to turning everyday building components into energy-generating devices.
The complex requirements of modern medicine demand a variety of multifunctional materials. Polymers provide a versatile toolbox for such materials. Hydrolytically degradable polymers show temporal changes of mechanical properties during degradation and controlled drug release capabilities, while stimuli-sensitive polymers enable a non-invasive external stimulus to trigger a change in a material property in vivo. Polymers [...]
New work highlights the unique effects that arise from incorporation of anion-binding moieties into polymeric systems.
Researchers from the ETH Zurich present a novel synthesis method that leads to thermally stable dendronized polymers with aromatic dendrons.
