  • Making nano-scale manufacturing eco-friendly with silk

    Nanolithography — a way of making finely detailed patterns or structures, such as those found in advanced computer microchips, uses toxic and corrosive chemicals. Researchers have now shown that these could be replaced with eco-friendly silk proteins and water, eliminating the need to use and dispose of hazardous chemicals, while achieving similar levels of detail to conventional methods. ...

  • The ultimate fuel

    In three years a new type of battery may be available, using urine as an energy source. The inventor, Dr Ki Bang Lee (South Korea), has created his own business, K B Lab, in Singapore. He intends to make the batteries himself and/or have other companies develop them under licence. The battery consists of a strip of filter paper containing cupric chloride. A cathode is sandwiched between a ...
