Recycle: Old newspapers used to grow carbon nanotubes

Swansea - A study shows how old newspaper can be used as a low-cost and green solution for the large-scale production of single walled carbon nanotubes. The nanotubes can be used in electronics and optics technology.

Creating carbon nanotubes with everyday solvent

Carbon nanotubes can be usable as common plastics, according to new research. The study indicates that cresols - simple solvents – can disperse carbon nanotubes at very high concentrations.

Bionic spinach can sense explosives

In strange-but-true science, researchers have embedded carbon nanotubes into the leaves of spinach, enabling the ‘bionic’ plant to gain the capability to detect explosives.

Japanese company announces space elevator to be completed by 2050

Tokyo - Although it may sound like something from a Hollywood science fiction movie, engineers at a prominent Japanese construction company are serious about building the world's first working space elevator.

Self repairing carbon fibre works, so nothing may be the same again

Science fiction fans will remember self repairing machines from a few shows. It’s so simple you’d scream, but it’s good science by any standards. Using carbon nanotubes, structural strength and integrity in composite materials can be increased.

Paper batteries: they work in a 400 degree temperature range, weigh almost nothing

Yep, a paper battery, with about the same amount of energy as a lithium ion battery, in the same way. The prototype produces 2.5 volts, but the developers say it can be cranked up to power electronic equipment.
