Rice University lab builds rig to evaluate oil, gas wells in fracturing operations A tabletop device invented at Rice University can tell how efficiently a nanoparticle would travel through a well and may provide a wealth of information for oil and gas producers. The device gathers data on how tracers – microscopic particles that can be pumped into and recovered from wells – move through deep rock formations that have been opened by hydraulic fracturing. Drilling companies use...

Mystery Behind Water's Role In Graphene Finally Tapped
2014-02-14 07:51:46

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online With a vast range of unique properties, graphene has proven itself a wonder material. Among these properties, graphene's strange love affair with water has remained a mystery until now. Graphene repels water, known as being hydrophobic. However, narrow capillaries made from graphene will vigorously suck in water, allowing for rapid permeation, that is if the water layer is the same thickness as the graphene itself—only one atom...
