Rice University is consistently ranked one of America’s best teaching and research universities. It is distinguished by its: • Size—2,850 undergraduates and 1,950 graduate students • Selectivity—10 applicants for each place in the freshman class • Resources—an undergraduate student-to-faculty ratio of 5-to-1 and the fifth-largest endowment per student among private American universities • Residential college system—which builds communities that are both close-knit and diverse • Collaborative culture—which crosses disciplines, integrates teaching and research, and intermingles undergraduate and graduate work Rice’s wooded campus is located in the nation’s fourth-largest city and on America’s South Coast.


Graphene-polymer composite - light tanks to keep gases in check
17 October, 2013
A composite material created at Rice University is nearly impervious to gas and may lead to efficient storage of compressed natural gas for vehicles. It might also prolong the shelf life of bottled beer and soda. A 65 micron-wide polymer film contains a tiny amount of enhanced graphene nanoribbon that present gas molecules a tortuous path to escape.
Nanoscale block copolymers designed to be impervious to deformation
21 November, 2012
A Rice University lab, in collaboration with researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and its Institute for Soldier Nanotechnologies, have created nanoscale target materials, microscale ammunition and even the method for firing them.
Invisible graphene barrier wards off copper corrosion
27 September, 2012
An invisible coating has been shown to make copper nearly 100 times more resistant to corrosion, creating tremendous potential for metal protection, even in harsh environments.
Study shows nanoshells ideal as chemical nanosensors
11 January, 2005
Nanoshells can enhance sensitivity to chemical detection by factor of 10 billion
Research demystifies quantum properties of exotic materials
15 December, 2004
Physicists from Rice University, Rutgers University and the Max-Planck Institute for Chemical Physics of Solids in Dresden, Germany, offers a new explanation of the way quantum effects could create some of the strange electronic properties that have been observed in the important class of 'heavy fermion' materials.
Rice refining production of pure nanotube fibres
02 September, 2004
Rice University scientists are refining pioneering chemical production methods used to make pure carbon nanotube fibres.
