Sinitskii, colleagues, to research 2-D nanomaterials known as MXenes
Prof. Alexander Sinitskii and colleagues demonstrated a better method for synthesizing flakes of the MXene material titanium carbide, substantially boosting its electrical conductivity in the process.
Zeng’s clean-energy catalyst research could accelerate production of low cost renewable hydrogen fuel
New research led by Nebraska’s Xiao Cheng Zeng and colleagues could steer the design of less costly, more efficient catalysts geared toward revving up the production of hydrogen as a renewable fuel.
Berkowitz, colleagues, to research radiation exposure drugs
Professor David Berkowitz (UNL) and Professor Kenneth Bayles (UNMC) are working on a drug development pipeline concept that would build on strengths in fundamental science and biomedical research at the two campuses. This approach is being applied to a new project with the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) that is directed at developing new therapeutics for acute radiation syndrome (ARS).
