• 2008 Finniston Lecture on ceramic membranes for clean energy

    IOM3
    The 2008 Finniston Lecture, ‘Ceramic Membranes for Clean Energy Conversion – Engineering with Eggshells’, will be presented by Professor John Kilner on 22 October in London.
  • Materials mapping seeks your views

    IOM3
    The Royal Society of Chemistry is conducting an online materials mapping exercise.
  • Mine waste produces fuel

    Materials World magazine
    Power generation from acid mine drainage (AMD) is the subject of research being conducted at Pennsylvania State University, USA. The team is investigating treatment of mine waste using a specially developed fuel cell that generates electricity while recovering ferric iron for use in pigments.
  • Final programme available for Materials Congress

    IOM3
    A full listing of presentations is now available for Materials Congress, which is being held from 13-15 May in Grantham, UK. The technical symposia and masterclasses incorporate an exciting array of speakers representing a vast array of sectors.
  • Overview of programme for Materials Congress 2008

    IOM3
    An 'at a glance' programme for Materials Congress 2008, to be held on 13-15 May 2008 in Grantham, can be downloaded for a quick and easy overview of all the sessions taking place.
  • Low pressure for gas storage

    Materials World magazine
    Using the crystal barium organotrisulfonate, researchers at the University of Calgary, Canada, have created molecular valves that can help trap and store gases at high densities without the need for high pressures. The could lead to a safer and more efficient means of storing carbon dioxide or hydrogen for environmentally friendly vehicles.
  • Professor John Pethica

    Measured approach

    Materials World magazine
    Professor John Pethica, Chief Scientific Advisor at the UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL), describes his career leading up to the NPL, the materials testing specifications and standards adhered to by the organisation, and what steps he thinks the UK should take to foster a successful science industry.
  • Unlocking uranium’s chemistry

    Materials World magazine
    Scientists at the University of Edinburgh, UK, have taken the most common form of uranium, uranyl dication (UO22+), found in the natural environment and nuclear waste, and converted the chemically un-reactive compound into a reactive molecule. The team believes this could improve understanding of nuclear materials and waste, and the ability to handle them.
