Researchers routinely use 2D experiments and simulations to represent 3D liquids, simply because studies in 2D are easier to do
The system could automate chemical synthesis for batteries and drug formulations
The procedure centers on making droplets, which are a mixture of two or more immiscible, or unmixable, liquids—in this case, oil, water, and alcohol
Theoretical description supported by mathematical calculations provides a roadmap that could lead to discovery of a 'chiral spin liquid'
Layering in cafe lattes yields insights for engineering, medicine, and environment
Understanding process that creates complex crystals important for energy applications
Acoustic liquid handling ensures high accuracy at low volume
Determining how the ions of the liquid move and rearrange in response to an applied voltage on electrodes is key to optimizing the performance of ionic liquids for energy storage devices
Accuracy depends on you: know your pipette, maintain it, and practice good technique.
