COSMETIC APPLICATIONS OF SILANES HIGHLIGHTED DURING THE SOL-GEL CONFERENCE IN KYOTO
A L’Oréal Research team was invited to present its pioneer work and recent findings at the XVIII edition of the International Sol-Gel Conference held in Kyoto on September 6-11, 2015.
Using a hybrid silica sol-gel material and self-assembled monolayers of a common fatty acid, researchers have developed a new capacitor dielectric material that provides an electrical energy storage capacity rivaling certain batteries, with both a high energy density and high power density.
In a recent study published in Advanced Materials, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Duke University, and Columbia University have combined two commonly used materials to create a printable gel that is tough enough to stand up to intense stresses.
According to Patently Apple, Apple has filed a new(ish) patent for a ceramic component casting method to manufacture harder zirconia ceramics.
