Chronic diabetic skin wounds are notoriously slow to heal, sometimes becoming so infected that amputations are required. A newly identified polymer could help keep that from happening, by radically boosting the healing process.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: University of Nottingham, Diabetes, Wound, Healing, Dressings, Polymer
In wastewater produced by the textile industry and others, dye is one of the primary pollutants. A newly developed synthetic polymer is capable of removing that dye from the water, plus it can be cleaned up and reused to treat more wastewater.Continue ReadingCategory: Materials, ScienceTags: North Carolina State University, Purification, Pollution, Wastewater, Polymer
Construction is one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions, so finding new materials and methods is a crucial goal. Researchers at Flinders University have now developed a new type of polymer, made out of industrial waste, that can be formed into building bricks that bond together without needing any mortar.Continue ReadingCategory: Materials, ScienceTags: Environment, Environmentally
Researchers at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology have developed a 'faster, cheaper method to produce customized optical components' for applications including 'corrective lenses, augmented and virtual reality, autonomous vehicles, medical imaging and astronomy.' As DIY Photography observes, it's not unreasonable to think that the new lens making method could be used for photographic l is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
