New type of concrete reduces time needed for road works

Nanyang Technological University scientists from JTC Industrial Infrastructure Innovation Centre (I³C) have invented a new type of concrete that is bendable yet stronger and longer lasting than regular concrete which is heavy, brittle and breaks under tension.

Impregnation and encapsulation of lightweight aggregates for self-healing concrete

A study investigated a technique of impregnating potential self-healing agents into lightweight aggregates (LWA) and the self-healing performance of concrete mixed with the impregnated LWA.

Fireproof coatings produced using magnetic nanoparticles

Researchers from Kashan University, Iran, succeeded in the production of fireproof coatings by synthesising a type of magnetic nanoparticle and using it in a nanocomposite structure.

Solvent-driven electron trapping in reduced graphites to access perfect graphene

A study reports on a significant discovery, namely, the quantitative discharging of reduced graphite forms, such as graphite intercalation compounds, graphenide dispersions and graphenides deposited on surfaces with the simple solvent benzonitrile.

Balancing strength of Portland cement concrete via nanovoids and particle inclusions

What does one need to strengthen or toughen concrete? A lot of nothing. Or something.

Self-healing coating for textiles can neutralise chemicals

Someday, chemically protective suits made of fabric coated in self-healing, thin films may prevent farmers from exposure to pesticides, soldiers from chemical attacks and factory workers from accidental releases of toxic materials, according to a team of researchers.

Researchers develop environmentally friendly eco-concrete

Grey on the outside, green inside: The production of "Öko²-Beton” concrete consumes up to 30 percent less CO2 than the production of standard concrete, and yet the "green” concrete is by no means less stable or less convenient to process.

Superhydrophobic surfaces with silane-treated diatomaceous earth/resin systems

In a study, superhydrophobic coatings were prepared using fluorosilane-treated diatomaceous earth (DE) with either polyurethane or epoxy binders.

Synthesis of chitosan capped CuO nanoleaves and their application in antifouling coatings

Indian researchers synthesised chitosan capped cupper oxide nanoleaves by high intensity ultrasound. To investigate the antifouling effiency, they blended the nanoleaves with commercial polyurethane paints.
