Latest Polymer Stories
Scientists at the University of California, San Diego have developed what they believe to be the first polymeric material that is sensitive to biologically benign levels of near infrared (NRI) irradiation, enabling the material to disassemble in a highly controlled fashion.
Researchers at the University of Leeds and Durham University have solved a long-standing problem that could revolutionize the way new plastics are developed.
Scientists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst report that for the first time they have designed a much simpler method of preparing ordered magnetic materials than ever before, by coupling magnetic properties to nanostructure formation at low temperatures.
Lithium-ion batteries are everywhere, in smart phones, laptops, an array of other consumer electronics, and the newest electric cars.
Crystals and ceramics pale when compared to a material researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory discovered that has 10 times their piezoelectric effect, making it suitable for perhaps hundreds of everyday uses.
A blast of gamma radiation could toughen up plastic prosthetic joints to make them strong enough to last for years.
A new physics-based theory could give researchers a deeper understanding of the unusual, slow dynamics of liquids composed of large polymers.
Strength of spider dragline silk exceeds that of any material produced in laboratories, by far.
Synthetic Metals is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Elsevier. It covers all aspects of electronic polymers and electronic molecular materials. It is an international medium for the rapid publication of original research papers, short communications and subject reviews dealing with research on and applications of electronic polymers and electronic molecular materials including novel carbon architectures. Original manuscripts on chemical, electrochemical, electrical, photonic...
