Waste not want not: life cycle implications of gold recovery and recycling from nanowaste
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-08-24)
Commercial-scale applications of nanotechnology are rapidly increasing. Enhanced production of nanomaterials and nano-enabled products and their resultant disposal lead to concomitant increases in the volume of nanomaterial ...
Status and Perspectives of Multiferroic Magnetoelectric Composite Materials and Applications
Multiferroic magnetoelectric (ME) composites are attractive materials for various electrically and magnetically cross-coupled devices. Many studies have been conducted on fundamental understanding, fabrication processes, ...
Thermal stability and electrical conductivity of carbon-enriched silicon oxycarbide
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-01-28)
Silicon oxycarbide (SiOC) is an interesting polymer-derived system that can be tailored to embody many different properties such as lightweight, electrochemical activity, and high temperature stability. One intriguing ...
Hybrid metamaterials for electrically triggered multifunctional control
(Springer Nature, 2016-10-27)
Despite the exotic material properties that have been demonstrated to date, practical examples of versatile metamaterials remain exceedingly rare. The concept of metadevices has been proposed in the context of hybrid ...
Adsorbing/dissolving Lyoprotectant Matrix Technology for Non-cryogenic Storage of Archival Human Sera
(Springer Nature, 2016-04-12)
Despite abundant research conducted on cancer biomarker discovery and validation, to date, less than two-dozen biomarkers have been approved by the FDA for clinical use. One main reason is attributed to inadvertent use of ...
Food Digest : 2016

Message from the Department Head: The newsletter is a chance for us to reflect on the many activities of the Department of Food Science and Technology over the last year and to look ahead. In our last newsletter we detailed ...
Influence of nucleobase stoichiometry on the self-assembly of ABC triblock copolymers
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-05-11)
ABC triblock copolymers bearing adenine- and thymine-functionalized external blocks self-assembled into long-range, ordered lamellar microphase-separated morphologies on non-patterned substrates. Intermolecular hydrogen ...
Non-isocyanate poly(amide-hydroxyurethane)s from sustainable resources
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-05-19)
A two-step synthesis of epoxidation and carbonation afforded a hetero-functional AB monomer with cyclic carbonate and methyl ester (CC-ME) using plant oil-based methyl 9-decenoate and CO2. A unprecedented one-pot synthetic ...
Cooperative electrochemical water oxidation by Zr nodes and Ni–porphyrin linkers of a PCN-224 MOF thin film
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-10-06)
Here, we demonstrate a new strategy for cooperative catalysis and proton abstraction via the incorporation of independent species competent in the desired reactivity into a metal–organic framework (MOF) thin film. The ...
