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.
A*STAR researchers have developed a computational technique that allows them to predict the properties of MXene alloys.
Machine learning could pave the way for the creation of novel alloys for a range of practical applications, say scientists at A*STAR.
