Artificial photosynthesis steps into the lightArtificial photosynthesis steps into the light
Rice lab turns transition metals into practical catalyst for solar, other applications
Rice University scientists have created an efficient, simple-to-manufacture oxygen-evolution catalyst that pairs well with semiconductors for solar water splitting, the conversion of solar energy to chemical energy in the form of hydrogen and oxygen. (March 23, 2017)


Rice U. refines filters for greener natural gasRice U. refines filters for greener natural gas
Study defines best materials for carbon capture, methane selectivity
Natural gas producers want to draw all the methane they can from a well while sequestering as much carbon dioxide as possible, and could use filters that optimize either carbon capture or methane flow. No single filter will do both, but thanks to Rice University scientists, they now know how to fine-tune sorbents for their needs. (March 23, 2017)

New path suggested for nuclear fusionNew path suggested for nuclear fusion
Rice, Illinois, Chilean scientists report quantum control of atoms may make fusion energy production more efficient
Controlled nuclear fusion has been a holy grail for physicists who seek an endless supply of clean energy. Scientists at Rice University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of Chile offered a glimpse into a possible new path toward that goal.  (March 2, 2017)


Good vibrations help reveal molecular detailsGood vibrations help reveal molecular details
Rice scientists combine disciplines to pinpoint small structures in unlabeled molecules
Five years of hard work and a little “cosmic luck” led Rice University researchers to a new method to obtain structural details on molecules in biomembranes.  (February 15, 2017)


Graphene foam gets big and toughGraphene foam gets big and tough
Rice’s nanotube-reinforced material can be shaped, is highly conductive - See more at: http://news.rice.edu/2017/02/13/graphene-foam-gets-big-and-tough-2/#sthash.IREGxVna.dpuf
A chunk of conductive graphene foam reinforced by carbon nanotubes can support more than 3,000 times its own weight and easily bounce back to its original height, according to Rice University scientists.  (February 13, 2017)
