Researchers at TU Dortmund University transform aqueous gel into glass-like material


03.03.2017 – Prof. Joerg Tiller and Nicolas Rauner of the Faculty of Biochemical and Chemical Engineering at TU Dortmund University have developed a gel that consists largely of water — up to 90 percent — but nevertheless is ultrastiff and extremely tough. The invention is so striking that the work made it into the renowned scientific journal Nature. In the future, this new material could come into use as a pressure-stable separation membrane for seawater desalination, or as a highly porous electrode material for batteries or fuel cells.
