Rice University graphene-based de-icer melts — and prevents ice from forming

October 4th, 2016

Rice University graphene-based de-icer melts — and prevents ice from forming 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 […]
