Proud publishes a paper in in ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering on the use of controlled release strategies to reduce in vivo epidermal down growth in murine model. Insights into controlled release dynamics from elastomeric matrices are also included.
How can we use biomaterials in lithium-ion batteries? Hang-Ah and Young Jo show that you can use melanins to selectively separate Mg from Li, a key step in sourcing raw materials for LIBs. See the full paper here.
Understanding thermal transport is an important issue in electronics including organic materials. This paper demonstrates that the interfacial resistance dictates the overall thermal transport in model organic semiconducting systems. The full paper can be found here.
A collaboration with Kris Matyjaszewski and researchers from Peking University results in an exciting discovery published in ACS Nano where brittle conducting polymers are fashioned into intrinsically elastomeric conductors.
