SACHEM N416 is a mildly basic organic salt that can be used as catalyst, curing agent, and initiator in the polymer industry.
Researchers have created a new, cost-effective polymer membrane that decreases the cost of alkaline batteries and fuel cells by replacing costly platinum catalysts without sacrificing performance.
The mineral molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), which, when solid, behaves in many ways like grease, has semiconducting properties that make it a promising alternative to silicon or graphene in electronic devices.
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are applying similar principles in the development optomechanical sensors that will help unlock vibrational secrets of chemical and biological samples at the nanoscale.
Bubbles in a champagne glass may add a festive fizz to the drink, but microscopic bubbles that form in a material called metallic glass can signal serious trouble. In this normally high-strength material, bubbles may indicate that a brittle breakdown is in progress.
