Nanofur for oil spill cleanup

Hairy plant leaves are highly oil-absorbing

22-Aug-2016

Some water ferns can absorb large volumes of oil within a short time, because their leaves are strongly water-repellent and, at the same time, highly oil-absorbing. Researchers of KIT, together with colleagues of Bonn University, have found that the oil-binding capacity of the water plant results ...

Computer Simulation Discloses New Effect of Cavitation

Use for Reducing Wear in Pumps and Plain Bearings

30-Mar-2016

Researchers have discovered a so far unknown formation mechanism of cavitation bubbles by means of a model calculation. In the Science Advances journal, they describe how oil-repellent and oil-attracting surfaces influence a passing oil flow. Depending on the viscosity of the oil, a steam bubble ...
