MIT engineers have created a new polymer film that can generate electricity by drawing on a ubiquitous source: water vapor.
The new material changes its shape after absorbing tiny amounts of evaporated water, allowing it to repeatedly curl up and down. Harnessing this continuous motion could drive robotic limbs or generate enough electricity to ...

Tiny particles made of polymers hold great promise for targeted delivery of drugs and as structural scaffolds for building artificial tissues. However, current production methods for such microparticles yield a limited array of shapes and can only be made with certain materials, restricting their usefulness.
In an advance that ...

Plastic may compete with paper in the grocery line, but it doesn’t have to compete with the world’s food supply, according to Univ. of Florida researchers.
They’ve developed a way to produce plastic that doesn’t use valuable natural resources, such as food or fuel, for raw materials.
The new method uses a strain of bacteria to create ...
