New ‘Self-Healing’ Gel Makes Electronics More Flexible
Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering have developed a first-of-its-kind self-healing gel that repairs and connects electronic circuits, creating opportunities to advance the development o...
The tyranny of olive oil
Olive oil is known as the "healthy alternative" to butter, but does that matter to real cooks and consumers? Get their opinions and the fast facts on butter, olive oil and saturated fats.
Can Rain Clean The Atmosphere?
As a raindrop falls through the atmosphere, it can attract tens to hundreds of tiny aerosol particles to its surface before hitting the ground. The process by which droplets and aerosols attract is co...
Flawed Science Triggers U-Turn On Cholesterol Fears
For decades they have been blacklisted as foods to avoid, the cause of deadly thickening of the arteries, heart disease and strokes. But the science which warned us off eating eggs – along with other ...
Trans fats backlash pushes U.S. butter consumption to a 40-year-high
A backlash against trans fats has pushed U.S. butter consumption to a 40-year-high.

Colloidal crystal
A colloidal crystal is an ordered array of colloid particles, analogous to a standard crystal whose repeating subunits are atoms or molecules. A natural example of this phenomenon can be found in the ...
Surface science
Surface science is the study of physical and chemical phenomena that occur at the interface of two phases, including solid–liquid interfaces, solid–gas interfaces, solid–vacuum interfaces, and liquid–...
Interface and colloid science
Interface and colloid science is an interdisciplinary intersection of branches of chemistry, physics, nanoscience and other fields dealing with colloids, heterogeneous systems consisting of a mechanic...
Aerosol
An aerosol is a colloid of fine solid particles or liquid droplets, in air or another gas. Aerosols can be natural or not. Examples of natural aerosols are fog, forest exudates and geyser steam. Examp...
Gel
A gel (coined by 19th-century Scottish chemist Thomas Graham, by clipping from gelatine) is a solid, jelly-like material that can have properties ranging from soft and weak to hard and tough. Gels are...
Supercritical adsorption
Supercritical Adsorption also referred to as the adsorption of supercritical fluids, is the adsorption at above-critical temperatures. There are different tacit understandings of supercritical fluids....
Solvent
A solvent (from the Latin solvō, "I loosen, untie, I solve") is a substance that dissolves a solute (a chemically different liquid, solid or gas), resulting in a solution. A solvent is usually a liqui...

Electric sonic amplitude
Electric sonic amplitude is an electroacoustic phenomenon that is the reverse to colloid vibration current. It occurs in colloids, emulsions and other heterogeneous fluids under the influence of an os...
Scotch hands
Scotch hands (also known as butter beaters) are large wooden spatulas used when making butter. They are used for shaping the butter into bricks and for other miscellaneous manipulation. One side of th...
Butter lamp
Butter lamps (Tibetan: དཀར་མེ་, Wylie: dkar me) are a conspicuous feature of Tibetan Buddhist temples and monasteries throughout the Himalayas. The lamps traditionally burn clarified yak but...

Colloidal gold
Colloidal gold is a suspension (or colloid) of submicrometre-size particles of gold in a fluid, usually water. The liquid is usually either an intense red colour (for particles less than 100 nm)...
Transport length
The transport length in a strongly diffusing medium (noted l*) is the length over which the direction of propagation of the photon is randomized. It is related to the mean free path l by the relation:...
Kinetic capillary electrophoresis
Kinetic capillary electrophoresis or KCE is capillary electrophoresis of molecules that interact during electrophoresis. KCE was introduced and developed by Professor Sergey Krylov and his research gr...
Patchy particles
Patchy particles are models in molecular dynamics simulation.
The concept of Directional Entropic Force can be used to create effective entropic patchy particles where facets act like the anisotro...
Foam
A foam is a substance that is formed by trapping pockets of gas in a liquid or solid. A bath sponge and the head on a glass of beer are examples of foams. In most foams, the volume of gas is large, wi...
