A team of researchers led by Dr. Yuanyuan Guo at Tohoku University’s Frontier Research Institute for Interdisciplinary Sciences (FRIS) has developed a flexible polymer-based actuatable fiber that can be integrated with smart materials and biosensing composite materials. The fiber, produced using the preform-to-fiber thermal drawing process, can be used for closed-loop control in high-precision operations,READ MORE
Researchers at the Institute for Chemical Reaction Design and Discovery (WPI-ICReDD) have developed a new method that uses cooperating catalysts to carry out dearomative carboxylation reactions, which involves disrupting stable aromatic systems. In this process, highly reactive CO2 radical anions are derived from inexpensive formate salts and used to produce products such as α-amino acids,READ MORE
