Scientists Recycle Plastic Bags Into Carbon Nanotubes
2013-09-25 19:23:15

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online One man's waste plastic bags could be a high-tech's nanomaterial, according to a new study published in the journal Carbon. Researchers at the University of Adelaide have developed a process for turning plastic bags like you get at the grocery store into "carbon nanotube membranes." This high-tech nanomaterial is a sophisticated and expensive material with a variety of potential applications, including filtration, sensing, energy...

Air Raid: Cavan Ventures completed its second airborne survey in a week. Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) September 24, 2013 On the road to developing its pair of flagship graphite properties, Cavan Ventures completed its second airborne survey in a week. Back-to-back campaigns on its CAGE and Buckingham properties returned positive results, and provided Cavan with potential targets to investigate at ground level. Cavan took to the skies again less than a week after identifying several magnetic...

X Prize For Measuring Ocean Health
2013-09-10 11:15:29

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Global warming alarmists and deniers alike can probably agree on at least one thing: Scientists need the most accurate data and tools to make their climate assessments. In pursuit of more accurate climate data, the X Prize Foundation has announced a $2-million competition designed to kick-start technology innovations surrounding the accurate measuring of oceanic pH. Climatologists have been warning that the world's oceans are...

Manufacturing Saws Made Of Carbon
2013-09-09 11:43:03

Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft More material could be saved when manufacturing wafers in future. Ultra-thin saws made of carbon nanotubes and diamond would be able to cut through silicon wafers with minimum kerf loss. A new method makes it possible to manufacture the saw wires. You can’t saw without producing sawdust – and that can be expensive if, for example, the “dust” comes from wafer manufacturing in the photovoltaic and semiconductor industries, where relatively high kerf loss has...

Ocean Acidification
2013-04-01 10:32:20

Ocean acidification is the name that was given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of Earth’s oceans, a cause of the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. About 30 to 40 percent of the carbon dioxide that is released by humans into the atmosphere dissolves into the lakes, oceans, and rivers. To maintain the chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to create carbonic acid. Some of these extra carbonic acid molecules react with a water molecule to provide a...

Graphite (named by Abraham Gottlob Werner in 1789, from the Greek γραφειν: "to draw/write", for its use in pencils) is one of the allotropes of carbon. Unlike diamond, graphite is a conductor, and can be used, for instance, as the material in the electrodes of an electrical arc lamp. Occurrence Associated minerals include: quartz, calcite, micas, iron meteorites and tourmalines. Notable occurrences include New York and Texas in the USA, Russia, Mexico, Greenland,...

Word of the Day
tesla
  • The unit of magnetic flux density in the International System of Units, equal to the magnitude of the magnetic field vector necessary to produce a force of one newton on a charge of one coulomb moving perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field vector with a velocity of one meter per second. It is equivalent to one weber per square meter.
This word is named for Nikola Tesla, the inventor, engineer, and futurist.
