Significant progress in carbon nanotube research

Researchers from Suzhou Institute of Nano-Tech and Nano-Bionics (SINANO) and Stanford University found an improved method to crosslink carbon nanotubes. Carbon nanotubes have high thermal conductivity, absorption, tensile strength and elasticity. These properties make carbon nanotubes very useful in nanotechnology, semiconductors, and optics. Because these three fields are increasingly important Read more…

Cloisonné Bowel, Chinese technology using vitreous enamel

Chinese company claims to have developed air-purifying wall

The Chinese company Kaier New Materials claims to have developed an innovative air-purifying technology. The Hangzhou-based company created an enamel material that can decompose air pollutants into carbon dioxide, mineral salt and water. Decomposable air pollutants include PM2.5. Extreme levels of these micrometer-sized particulates has had Beijing issue two red alerts in December 2015 and government agencies continue Read more…
