2018 saw a significant step for aerogels in consumer electronics

2018 saw a significant step for aerogels in consumer electronics - but what is an aerogel? The Dell XPS 13 launched at CES 2018 and included the use of a material called silica aerogel for improved thermal performance. Aerogels are often dubbed "space-age technology" with most internet searches directing the reader towards use cases in the NASA stardust probe and Mars Rover, but the history, material diversity, and commercial status are very different.

Graphene for vehicle parts

Graphene for vehicle parts

Graphene is a material used in coating, cell phones and even some sporting goods - and soon, will be used under the hood in Ford vehicles, a first in automotive. Ford, along with Eagle Industries and XG Sciences, has found a way to use a very small amount of graphene while achieving major property improvements - more lightweight, better heat conductivity and noise reduction.

Nanotube rebar makes graphene twice as tough

Nanotube rebar makes graphene twice as tough

Rebar graphene is the nanoscale analog of rebar (reinforcement bars) in concrete, in which embedded steel bars enhance the material's strength and durability. Rebar graphene, developed by the Rice lab of chemist James Tour in 2014, uses carbon nanotubes for reinforcement.

Supercapacitors Exceed the Energy Density of Batteries

Supercapacitors Exceed the Energy Density of Batteries

Some supercapacitors will become smart materials and be sold as feedstock by value added material companies such as Dow DuPont and Nitto Denko. Which companies and when is as yet uncertain. This is part of the emerging big picture for supercapacitors that will make even their materials a multi- billion dollar business.

Supercapacitor Materials Improvement: Gateway to Multi $ Billion Busin

Supercapacitor Materials Improvement: Gateway to Multi $ Billion Busin

Supercapacitor materials are rapidly improving by new routes. The active materials are the dominant part of cost and the cause of limitations such as flammability, toxicity, cost, energy density and self- discharge. Currently the active electrodes almost always consist of bulk "hierarchical" carbon with a range of pore sizes, often made the old way from botanical materials.
