Graphene de-icer adds a skill for milder weather

May 24th, 2016

Graphene de-icer adds a skill for milder weather Rice scientists have advanced their graphene-based de-icer to serve a dual purpose. The new material still melts ice from wings and wires when conditions get too cold. But if the air is above 7 degrees Fahrenheit, ice won’t form at all. James Tour, the T.T. and W.F. […]

Graphene nanoribbons help to plug gaps in wellbores

May 18th, 2016

Wellbores drilled to extract oil and gas can be dramatically reinforced with a small amount of modified graphene nanoribbons added to a polymer and microwaved, according to Rice University researchers. James Tour, the T.T. and W.F. Chao Professor of Chemistry, professor of computer science and of materials science and nanoengineering, and Rouzbeh Shahsavari, assistant professor […]
