In an advance toward stain-proof, spill-proof clothing, protective garments and other products that shrug off virtually every liquid – from blood and ketchup to concentrated acids – scientists are reporting development of new "superomniphobic" surfaces. Their report on surfaces that display extreme repellency to two families of liquids – Newtonian and non-Newtonian liquids – appears in the Journal of the American Chemical Society. Anish Tuteja and colleagues point...

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online If you´ve ever run across a section of beach where a wave has just receded, you know that the wet sand there can act and feel as hard as concrete. The thick mixture of sand and water that can be poured like a liquid but is hard when struck is an example of what scientists call a non-Newtonian fluid. According to a study published today in Nature, researchers from the University of Chicago have demonstrated that a compression of...

Bioinformaticians of Jena University calculated the optimal value of hematocrit with the help of Einstein's equation When people say "Blood is thicker than water," they are literally right. Because nearly half of the 'life liquid' consists of solid components. The red blood cells form the greatest part of it — all in all around 40 percent of the blood. They contain the red pigment hemoglobin and are responsible for the transport of oxygen. "It is amazing that the percentage of...

Stir lots of small particles into water, and the resulting thick mixture appears highly viscous. When this dense suspension slips through a nozzle and forms a droplet, however, its behavior momentarily reveals a decidedly non-viscous side. University of Chicago physicists recorded this surprising behavior in laboratory experiments using high-speed photography, which can capture action taking place in one hundred-thousandths of a second or less. UChicago graduate student Marc Miskin and...

Previous theories imposed a limit on how 'liquid' fluids can be -- but new calculations show that quark-gluon-plasma in high-energy particle accelerators can be even have a lower viscosity than this limit suggests How liquid can a fluid be? This is a question particle physicists at the Vienna University of Technology have been working on. The "most perfect liquid" is nothing like water, but the extremely hot quark-gluon-plasma which is produced in heavy-ion collisions at the Large Hadron...
