Rice de-icer gains anti-icing properties
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. Chao Professor of Chemistry, professor of computer science and of materials science and nanoengineering, is quoted and alumnus Abdul-Rahman Raji ’14 and graduate students Yilun Li and William Sikkema are mentioned.
