Rice University researchers, in collaboration with teams at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, University of Saskatchewan, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology and CAS, have used graphene quantum dots (GQDs) to assemble what they say may transform chemical catalysis...
A Rice University team has modified its laser-induced graphene technique to make high-resolution, micron-scale patterns of the conductive material for consumer electronics and other applications. Laser-induced graphene (LIG), introduced in 2014 by Rice chemist James Tour, involves burning away...
The “flash” process, introduced by Tour and his colleagues at Rice University in 2020, has now been optimized to convert waste from rubber tires into graphene that can, in turn, be used to strengthen concrete.The atoms reassemble into valuable...
Rice University's process to produce pristine graphene in bulk from waste (dubbed “flash graphene”) was recently modified for recycling plastic. Instead of raising the temperature of a carbon source with direct current, as in the original process, the lab...
LIGC Application, an Israeli maker of Laser-Induced Graphene filters (LIG), recently announced raising $3 Million in Series A funding. Wuhan-based public listed company Hubei Forbon Technology made the investment.The company intends to use the funds to scale and manufacture...
Materials scientists at Rice University and the University of Pennsylvania have published an article calling for a collective, global effort to fast-track the mass production of 2D materials like graphene and molybdenum disulfide.In their perspective article, journal editor-in-chief Jun...
Researchers at Rice University design a "shield" made of graphene oxide, that helps particles destroy antibiotic-resistant bacteria and free-floating antibiotic resistance genes in wastewater treatment plants.The labs of Rice environmental scientist Pedro Alvarez and Yalei Zhang, a professor of...
Rice University scientists led by Prof. James Tour have turned adhesive tape into a silicon oxide film (mixed with laser-induced graphene) which replaces troublesome anodes in lithium metal batteries.At left, a copper current collector with a laser-induced silicon oxide...
As researchers and companies all over the world set out to battle the Coronavirus pandemic, many are revisiting graphene as a material with potential for helping to win this fight. The reasons for such potential could be found in...
Scientists at Rice University, the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UT Knoxville) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have demonstrated the use of a very small visible beam to burn graphene into microscopic patterns.Scientists recorded the formation of laser-induced graphene...
