Nano Sponges on Graphene Have Potential for Rapid Wastewater Treatment

Nano Sponges on Graphene Have Potential for Rapid Wastewater Treatment

Efficient adsorbents for industrial wastewater treatment are important to minimize potential environmental damage. In particular, organic dyes, as a significant group of industrial pollutants, are usually highly water soluble, non-degradable and many are toxic to carcinogenic. Researchers now present a new approach to design an innovative composite material, consisting of a nanoporous, ultrathin covalent organic framework anchored on graphene, that is highly efficient at filtering organic pollutants from water.

Three Technologies Taking DNA Diagnostics Into the Home

Three Technologies Taking DNA Diagnostics Into the Home

In recent times, we have all experienced the value of diagnostics used in the comfort and ease of our own homes. Imagine if we could look for other infectious diseases just as easily, with less invasive, self-administered, highly accurate, and reliable tests. With the convergence of advances in telehealth and biotechnology, this is the direction that the diagnostics industry is heading towards.

Flexible Device Harvests Thermal Energy to Power Wearables

Flexible Device Harvests Thermal Energy to Power Wearables

Wearable electronics, from health and fitness trackers to virtual reality headsets, are part of our everyday lives. But finding ways to continuously power these devices is a challenge. Researchers have developed an innovative solution: the first-of-its kind flexible, wearable thermoelectric device that converts body heat to electricity. This device is soft and stretchable, yet sturdy and efficient — properties that can be challenging to combine.
