A tiny device incorporates a compound made from starch and baking soda to harvest energy from movement
Researchers have now shown how the structure of a MOF, and its interactions with the guest molecules, can produce a signal
New research in Nature Communications examines thermal transport in metal organic frameworks
Recent research focused on using materials known as metal-organic frameworks as gas sensors
New metal-organic framework enables capture of water from dry air 24/7
“Potential applications of this finding could include storage and release of hydrogen or natural gas to run your car, or in industrial uses where the frameworks could trap and separate dangerous gases to keep them from entering the atmosphere”
Computer modeling helps pinpoint best material out of a hundred thousand options
This gift from science just keeps on giving. Measurements taken at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) show why a material already known to be good at separating components of natural gas also can do something trickier: help convert one chemical to another, a process called catalysis. The discovery is a rare example of a laboratory-made material easily performing a task that biology usually requires a complex series of steps to accomplish.
Brian Shoemaker is helping a national team of scientists answer a million dollar question. Could a substance that resembles baby powder curb global carbon emissions?
