Antioxidants get smallAntioxidants get small
Molecular compounds mimic effective graphene agents, show potential for therapies
Treated particles of graphene derived from carbon nanotubes have demonstrated remarkable potential as life-saving antioxidants, but as small as they are, something even smaller had to be created to figure out why they work so well. (January 26, 2017)


Boron atoms stretch out, gain new powersBoron atoms stretch out, gain new powers
Rice simulations demonstrate 1-D material’s stiffness, electrical versatility
Hold on, there, graphene. You might think you’re the most interesting new nanomaterial of the century, but boron might already have you beat, according to scientists at Rice University.  (January 26, 2017)


3 Rice alumni make Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for 20173 Rice alumni make Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for 2017
Three Rice University alumni made this year’s Forbes’ 30 Under 30, an honor roll of people under 30 years old who are the “brightest young entrepreneurs, innovators and game changers.” Forbes magazine featured 30 honorees on each of the lists for 20 industries.  (January 11, 2017)


Carbon dots dash toward ‘green’ recycling roleCarbon dots dash toward ‘green’ recycling role
Rice scientists, colleagues use doped graphene quantum dots to reduce carbon dioxide to fuel
Graphene quantum dots may offer a simple way to recycle waste carbon dioxide into valuable fuel rather than release it into the atmosphere or bury it underground, according to Rice University scientists.  (December 16, 2016)


Light provides pull for future nanocatalyst measurementLight provides pull for future nanocatalyst measurement
Rice University photonics lab tests photon-induced force microscopy
Rice University nanophotonics researcher Isabell Thomann uses lasers, light-activated materials and light-measuring nanoscale tips to push the boundaries of experimental nanoscience, but light is providing the pull in her latest study.  (December 14, 2016)


Decoding cement’s shape promises greener concreteDecoding cement’s shape promises greener concrete
Rice scientists develop ‘programmable’ cement particles to attain enhanced properties
Bringing order to disorder is key to making stronger and greener cement, the paste that binds concrete. (December 7, 2016)


Bioscience grants benefit cutting-edge researchBioscience grants benefit cutting-edge research
Gulf Coast Consortia announces Dunn Foundation seed grants to study genome editing, micro-temperatures, blood stem cells and brain function
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, and a fifth group won a grant to support a cancer symposium.  (December 5, 2016)


Pine product offers fresh take on fine chemical synthesisPine product offers fresh take on fine chemical synthesis
Rice, Brigham Young scientists create reagents to simplify production of fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals
The goop from pine trees that contains compounds known as terpenes is used in the manufacture of food, cosmetics and drugs, but it might become even more valuable as a chemical reagent made through a process developed by scientists at Rice University.  (November 28, 2016)
