Weber introduces the world's best non-electric Toasty Feet insoles with a new NASA designed ultra- thin insulation material. This insulation was used by astronauts in space and is now available as foot warmer insoles for people on earth. These non-electric temperature level control (TLC)very thin insoles are less than 1/4 - inch thick and can be used as both shoe and boot liners. Can be trimmed to exact size with scissors. Feet are kept at a constant 72 degrees (F) at all times. Weber Toasty...

Scientists at Berkeley Lab find nanoparticle size is readily controlled to make stronger aluminum alloys Long before they knew they were doing it "“ as long ago as the Wright Brother's first airplane engine "“ metallurgists were incorporating nanoparticles in aluminum to make a strong, hard, heat-resistant alloy. The process is called solid-state precipitation, in which, after the melt has been quickly cooled, atoms of alloying metals migrate through a solid matrix and gather...

The discovery of a fundamental, previously unknown property of microbial nanowires in the bacterium Geobacter sulfurreducens that allows electron transport across long distances could revolutionize nanotechnology and bioelectronics, says a team of physicists and microbiologists at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Their findings reported in the Aug. 7 advance online issue of Nature Nanotechnology may one day lead to cheaper, nontoxic nanomaterials for biosensors and solid state...

Newly synthesized polymer, fitted with molecular pincers of carefully tailored structure, effectively captures nicotine molecules and its analogues. The polymer can be used for fabrication of sensitive and selective chemical sensors to determine nicotine in solutions, and in the near future also in gases. Moreover, the polymer is suitable for slow, controlled release of nicotine, e.g., for therapeutic purposes. The collaboration of researchers of the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the...

Researchers design a self-assembling material that can house other molecules Chemical reactions happen all of the time: some things burn or rust, others react to light exposure--even batteries use chemical reactions to supply electricity. One of the big challenges chemists continually face is finding new ways to control these reactions or create conditions that promote desirable reactions and limit undesirable ones. Recently, researchers at New York University demonstrated an ability to make...

Using high-resolution imaging technology, University of Illinois researchers have answered a question that had confounded semiconductor researchers: Is amorphous silicon a glass? The answer? Yes "“ until hydrogen is added. Led by chemistry professor Martin Gruebele, the group published its results in the journal Physical Review Letters. Amorphous silicon (a-Si) is a semiconductor popular for many device applications because it is inexpensive and can be created in a flexible thin film,...
