    New research makes non-rechargeable batteries rechargeable

    Non-rechargeable alkaline batteries commonly use zinc and manganese dioxide. Through a modification of the manganese dioxide, researchers at Stockholm University have discovered that they can recharge non-rechargeable alkaline batteries. A thesis in material chemistry at Stockholm University is now presenting the new results.

    Extended DREAM: Multiple-length scale approach to functional nanomaterials

    A team led by German Salazar-Alvarez, researcher at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry, has been awarded 10 MSEK by the Swedish Research Council, VR, to develop sample environments that will allow the in-situ and in-operando multiscale characterization of novel functional nanomaterials such as biomaterials, battery components, and magnetic nanoparticles.

    self-assembly of nanoparticles

    Understanding how the self-assembly of nanoparticles proceeds

    The discovery that the assembly of synthetic nanocrystals proceeds through a two-step process where nanoparticles first agglomerate into an intermediate disordered state that then rapidly transforms into large ordered arrays is similar to what has been recently observed for many synthetic crystal and biominerals.
