Graphene and Its Application in ElectronicsOct 15, 2019 | ACS MATERIAL LLC
If you haven’t heard of a material called graphene, you will soon enough. Graphene is a revolutionary material that is made from a single layer of graphite atoms strung together in a single sheet. It’s known as the strongest, lightest, thinnest, and hardest material on the planet. It’s also virtually limitless since it’s made of carbon, the fourth most common element in the known universe. Graphene has hundreds of practical applications in fields ranging from aerospace, the textile industry, computing, and electronics. As a result, graphene manufacturers are working to develop …Read More

Y-type ZeolitesAug 19, 2019 | ACS MATERIAL LLC
Dealuminated ultrastable Y zeolites have increasingly attracted attention as good adsorbents and stable acid catalysts. These materials exhibit high thermal and hydrothermal stability, as well as higher catalytic activity than that of aluminum-rich synthesized Y zeolites. The ultrastable Y zeolite (USY) in fluid cracking catalysis is commonly stabilized by ion-exchange with rare earth (RE) cations. These rare earth ultrastable Y zeolites, also known as REUSY, demonstrate how rare earth exchange can provide much needed hydrothermal stability.
Y zeolite (IZA structure, FAU …Read More
Type A and X ZeolitesJul 16, 2019 | ACS MATERIAL LLC
Zeolites, also commonly known as molecular sieves, are crystalline microporous materials primarily made up of SiO4and AlO4 corner-sharing tetrahedral building units. These are grown to form three-dimensional (3D) crystalline frameworks with well-defined channels and cavities of molecular dimensions. In application, their pore openings are utilized to selectively adsorb molecules smaller than the pore size and reject any molecules larger than the pore size. There are many types of zeolites which have been developed for the adsorption of various specific molecule sizes. These various types of …Read More
Radio Frequency Technology and GrapheneMar 11, 2019 | ACS MATERIAL LLC
Graphene is on the tip of every radio frequency researcher’s tongue and for good reason. Electronic technologies are speeding towards increasingly faster and smaller computing, communication and automation. These advancements have required silicon-based transistors to become more and more miniature. Today’s circuitry is smaller, faster and more efficient than ever before, but it’s widely believed that the drive for smaller and more powerful has a natural technological limit: current materials cannot infinitely get both smaller and faster. To continue on this path, new materials are …Read More
