Researchers have invented a device that electronically converts one metal into behaving like another to use as a catalyst for speeding up chemical reactions.
Scientists have found a way to significantly increase the antimicrobial properties of a material used in many medical devices and clinical surfaces: glass.
The self-cleaning bioplastic repels liquids and dirt — just like a lotus leaf — then breaks down rapidly once in soil.
Scientists are working to commercialise advanced products for firefighting, building protection and other applications, utilising a material known as MXene.
The 3D printing ink material could be used to fabricate parts useful for tissue engineering, toxicity testing and drug delivery.
Scientists have harnessed the natural ability of wood to faintly glow to develop a new sustainable phosphorescent material.
When the soft fabric is wrapped within a flexible plastic envelope and vacuum packed, it turns into a rigid structure that is 25 times stiffer or harder to bend.
Researchers have discovered a material that does not expand or contract over an extremely wide temperature range and may be one of the most stable materials known.
Researchers were able to replicate key features of barnacle and mussel glue, including protein filaments, chemical crosslinking and iron bonding.
Researchers created an intelligent material that has the structure of a 2D material but behaves like an electrolyte — and it could be a new way to deliver drugs within the body.
Minister for Education and Youth Alan Tudge has unveiled the latest addition to the ANFF's portfolio of open-access R&D capabilities: the EULITHA PhableR 100.
Engineers have developed a material that mimics human cartilage — and it could herald the development of a new generation of lightweight bearings.
Researchers from Osaka University have developed a nanocarbon material for electronics applications made from chitin derived from crab shells.
Introducing a layer of zirconium atoms between sheets of aluminium oxide and tungsten carbide creates exceptionally strong composite materials.
Researchers have made a breakthrough that could lead to the creation of 'built-to-order' nanostructures for use in electronics and optical devices.
