Epoxy compound gets a graphene bump

November 15th, 2018

Epoxy compound gets a graphene bump Epoxy combined with “ultrastiff” graphene foam invented in the Rice lab of chemist James Tour is substantially tougher than pure epoxy and far more conductive than other epoxy composites while retaining the material’s low density. It could improve upon epoxies in current use that weaken the material’s structure with […]

Nanotubes may give the world better batteries

November 13th, 2018

Nanotubes may give the world better batteries The lab of James Tour, the T.T. and W.F. Chao Chair in Chemistry and a professor of computer science and of materials science and nanoengineering, has shown that thin nanotube films effectively stop dendrites that grow naturally from unprotected lithium metal anodes in batteries. Tour is quoted, and […]
