U-M ChE’s Nicholas Kotov has been recognized by the Materials Research Society (MRS) with the David Turnbull Lectureship for foundational discoveries in interface-based engineering of self-organizing materials.
Nicholas Kotov honored by MRS with the David Turnbull Lectureship
Improving the production of hydrogen through solar power
U-M ChE Assistant Professor Nirala Singh has received funding to help improve the efficiency of producing hydrogen fuel through solar power. The research is part of a sponsored agreement between SunHydrogen, Inc. and U-M.
Toward protein nanomachines: just add charge
Added electrical charges can harness a protein’s shape and chemical properties to build interesting structures.
Nanofiber carpet could mimic gecko feet, polar bear fur
A new technique that mimics biological nanofiber arrays can grow chain-like molecules into 3D nanostructures.
Holography and LIDAR on the cheap with nanoparticle gel
Magnetic nanoparticles coated in amino acids can modulate light inexpensively at room temperature, and the findings have applications in autonomous vehicles.
Nanoparticles can limit inflammation by distracting the immune system
White blood cells get busy taking out the trash – it could be a lifesaver when the immune system goes haywire.
New class of antibiotics: nanobiotics
U-M researchers Nicholas Kotov and J. Scott VanEpps are collaborating to create a new class of antibiotics known as nanobiotics.
Most complex nanoparticle crystal ever made by design
Extraordinary nanoparticle crystals are possible by harnessing particle shape in addition to using DNA as smart glue.
Synthetic tooth enamel may lead to more resilient structures
Tooth enamel has changed very little over millions of years — and it is remarkably resistant to shock and wear.
