Aussie Scientists Develop New Coating Which Keeps Roofs Much Cooler

Posted by Peter, on June 10, 2015

Scientists at the University of Technology Sydney have developed a coating which keeps roofs significantly cooler than the ambient air temperature, even under the most intense summer conditions. Dr Angus Gentle and Emeritus Professor Geoff Smith reported that a roof with a “coated polymer stack” – a combination of specially chosen polyesters on a silver […]  Continue reading »

Aussie Scientists Develop Promising Hydrogen Storage Material

Posted by Peter, on December 8, 2012

Engineers at the University of New South Wales have developed a light weight, nano-engineered material that can store and release hydrogen, overcoming a major hurdle to its use as an alternative fuel source. The engineers have synthesised nanoparticles of sodium borohydride and encased these inside nickel shells. The unique "core-shell" nanostructure has remarkable hydrogen storage […]  Continue reading »

Australian-Chinese Solar Material Breakthrough

Posted by Peter, on May 30, 2008

Australian researchers at the University of Queensland, in collaboration with researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, have made a breakthrough discovery in the development of cost-effect solar energy and decontamination materials. Professor Max Lu from the University of Queensland said "We have grown the world’s first titanium oxide single crystals with large amounts of […]  Continue reading »
