Just Squeeze In — Drexel Researchers Discover When Spaces Are Tight, Nature Loosens Its Laws

September 18, 2017

It turns out that when they’re in a hurry and space is limited, ions, like people, will find a way to cram in — even if that means defying nature’s norms. Recently published research from an international team of scientists, including Drexel University’s Yury Gogotsi, PhD, shows that the charged particles will actually forgo their “opposites attract” behavior, called Coulombic ordering, when confined in the tiny pores of a nanomaterial. This discovery could be a pivotal development for energy storage, water treatment and alternative energy production technologies, which all involve ions packing into nanoporous materials.

Wax On, Melt Off

September 15, 2017

In a paper recently published in journal “Cement and Concrete Composites” researchers, led by Yaghoob Farnam, PhD, an assistant professor in Drexel’s College of Engineering, explain how substances like paraffin oil — known as “phase change materials” in chemistry — can be used in concrete to store energy and release it as heat when a road needs a melt-off.
