A new method to synthesize degradable nanoparticles may lead to eco-friendly applications in catalysis, sensing and medicine.
Self-assembled nanoparticles can stabilize oil-brine emulsions under extreme conditions, paving the way for enhanced oil recovery and other industrial applications.
A semi-batch approach to making acrylics could bring us one step closer to more planet-friendly plastics.
A highly sensitive biosensor may aid in the production of high-value compounds in microbial cell factories.
A*STAR scientists have developed strategies to manipulate surface tension in fluids and modify the surface properties of materials. Their findings could increase the yield of crude oil from oil wells and lead to super water- or oil-repellent surfaces.
An improved design for nickel hydroxide catalysts could reduce costs and improve the efficiency of hydrogen fuel and oxygen generation.
With a sound understanding of polymers, their properties and the methods to synthesize them, scientists can create novel materials for a wide range of practical applications.
By controlling the crystallization of pharmaceutical compounds using template surfaces, high quality drugs may be manufactured more cheaply and easily.
Chemists use free radicals to produce polymers strong enough to encapsulate drugs while remaining degradable
