Nanocar creator James Tour and team take on international competition with single-molecule marvel
Rice University chemist James Tour and members of his international team will meet in Toulouse, France, next week for the first Nanocar Race, a competition between single-molecule cars on a track that can only be viewed through a microscope.  (April 20, 2017)


NIH grant funds Center for Engineering Complex Tissues at RiceNIH grant funds Center for Engineering Complex Tissues at Rice
Biomedical technology resource will build a community around biomaterials
Bioengineers at Rice University, the University of Maryland and Wake Forest University have received a $6.25 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to establish the Center for Engineering Complex Tissues (CECT). The center, which will start April 15, will help move tissue engineering from the lab to the clinic by both developing new technologies and serving as a collaborative hub for the fast-growing community of surgeons, biomaterials experts and engineers focused on regenerative medicine.  (April 10, 2017)

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)
