The future of nanotechnology beyond 2016
New Materials Thumb
Florida Polytechnic University : 17 July, 2016  (Technical Article)
Nanotechnology is one of the fastest growing areas in technology and science. First introduced in 1959 by physicist Richard Feynman, nanotechnology is the practice of manipulating matter at the atomic and molecular level. Lauren Willison, Director of Admissions at Florida Polytechnic University, reviews the state-of-the-art.

Boron nitride nanosheet exhibits super-absorbent properties
New Materials Thumb
Deakin Institute for Frontier Materials : 04 January, 2016  (Technical Article)
In the hope of limiting the disastrous environmental effects of massive oil spills, materials scientists from Drexel University and Deakin University, in Australia, have teamed up to manufacture and test a new material, called a boron nitride nanosheet, that can absorb up to 33 times its weight in oils and organic solvents–a trait that could make it an important technology for quickly mitigating these costly accidents.

Acoustic technique reveals structural information in nanoscale materials
New Materials Thumb
Georgia Institute of Technology : 04 January, 2016  (Technical Article)
Understanding where and how phase transitions occur is critical to developing new generations of the materials used in high-performance batteries, sensors, energy-harvesting devices, medical diagnostic equipment and other applications. But until now there was no good way to study and simultaneously map these phenomena at the relevant length scales.

New Initiative to Capture Critical Raw Materials from Waste Electronics
New Materials Thumb
Materials Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) : 04 January, 2016  (Company News)
Each year around 9.9 million tonnes of waste electronic and electrical equipment (WEEE) is generated in the EU. WEEE is a rich potential source of recovered materials. Due to poor collection and recycling rates and processes that can only recover a small number of materials, many critical and valuable materials are lost from the system.

Open cell versus closed cell polyurethane foam: is there a difference?
New Materials Thumb
British Urethane Foam Contractors Association (BUFCA) : 04 January, 2016  (Technical Article)
The application of closed cell polyurethane foams for building insulation has been around for over 30 years, but recently the availability of an open cell option has come onto the market. Architects, specifiers and building consultants may well be confused as to the merits of these different systems.
