Zeolites’ porosity, surface area and catalytic abilities leveraged for diverse applications

By / July 6, 2012

Zeolite pellets like these are being used by Fraunhofer researchers in a new high-efficiency thermal energy storage system. Credit: Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB. This is totally an empirical observation, but it seems like recently there have been a growing number of references to zeolites in science and technology literature. Maybe it’s not…

Studying wurtzite under pressure could lead to new class of durable materials

By / October 20, 2010

Wang and colleagues used small angle X-ray diffraction and wide-angle X-ray diffraction to observe changes in the molecular structure of wurtzite crystal under pressure. It may come as a bit of a surprise, but the strongest material in the world isn’t very strong. Subject it to ultra-high pressure, though, and graphite becomes the hardest substance…
