Grants kickstart bioscience research projects
Four teams of scientists at Rice University and other Gulf Coast Consortia (GCC) institutions have earned research seed grants from the John S. Dunn Collaborative Research Awards.
Defects are perfect in laser-induced graphene
Researchers at Rice University have created flexible, patterned sheets of multilayer graphene from a cheap polymer by burning it with a computer-controlled laser.
The chemistry of cooking: Scientist meets chef
Two things you find on college campuses worldwide: classrooms teaching chemistry and cafeterias serving food to students. The two might not seem to be related, but Rice chemist and self-professed “foodie” Lesa Tran ’07 would argue differently.
Buckyballs enhance carbon capture
Rice University scientists have discovered an environmentally friendly carbon-capture method that could be equally adept at drawing carbon dioxide emissions from industrial flue gases and natural gas wells.
