  • "Green" Superhydrophobic Nanomaterial Inspired by Nature

    AIChE-ChEnected , 15th Feb 2015

    Researchers have developed a hydrocarbon-based superhydrophobic nanomaterial that presents a green alternative to hazardous fluorocarbons generally used to repel water. The new material, which is inexpensive and nontoxic, is the work of researchers at Rice University, the University of Swansea, the University of Bristol, and the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis.

  • Buckyballs enhance carbon capture

    Carbon Capture Journal , 15th Dec 2014

    Tests from one to 50 atmospheric pressures shows that PEI-C60 captured a fifth of its weight in carbon dioxide but no measurable amount of methane, and the material does not degrade over many absorption/desorption cycles.
