Electronic Entropy Enhances Water SplittingExternal link

A Northwestern Engineering team led by Chris Wolverton has discovered that cerium’s electronic entropy, which is created when an electron transitions among various states within an electron shell, is the underlying reason for its success. This finding could help researchers better exploit cerium’s entropy for water-splitting technologies. Read MoreExternal linkage

MIT Students Fortify Concrete by Adding Recycled PlasticExternal link

MIT undergraduate students have found that, by exposing plastic flakes to small, harmless doses of gamma radiation, then pulverizing the flakes into a fine powder, they can mix the irradiated plastic with cement paste and fly ash to produce concrete that is up to 15 percent stronger than conventional concrete.
