Lab-Made Cartilage Gel Outperforms the Real Thing

Lab-Made Cartilage Gel Outperforms the Real Thing

Researchers say they have created the first gel-based cartilage substitute that is even stronger and more durable than the real thing. Mechanical testing reveals that the team's hydrogel -- a material made of water-absorbing polymers -- can be pressed and pulled with more force than natural cartilage, and is three times more resistant to wear and tear.

Nano Sponges on Graphene Have Potential for Rapid Wastewater Treatment

Nano Sponges on Graphene Have Potential for Rapid Wastewater Treatment

Efficient adsorbents for industrial wastewater treatment are important to minimize potential environmental damage. In particular, organic dyes, as a significant group of industrial pollutants, are usually highly water soluble, non-degradable and many are toxic to carcinogenic. Researchers now present a new approach to design an innovative composite material, consisting of a nanoporous, ultrathin covalent organic framework anchored on graphene, that is highly efficient at filtering organic pollutants from water.
