3D printing one of the strongest materials on Earth

3D printing one of the strongest materials on Earth
Researchers from Virginia Tech and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have developed a novel way to 3D print complex objects of one of the highest-performing materials used in the battery and aerospace industries. Previously, researchers could only print this material, known as graphene, in 2D sheets or basic structures.

A new path to sustainable and biodegradable polyesters

A new path to sustainable and biodegradable polyesters
Researchers at Virginia Tech have synthesised a biodegradable alternative to polyolefins using a catalyst and the polyester polymer, and this could eventually have a profound impact on sustainability efforts. Rong Tong, assistant professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and affiliated faculty member of Macromolecules Innovation Institute (MII), led the team of researchers, whose findings were published in the journal Nature Communications.

Creating super elastic 3D printed nanostructured materials

Creating super elastic 3D printed nanostructured materials
Researchers led by Xiaoyu "Rayne" Zheng, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Virginia Tech have published a study in the journal Nature Materials that describes a process to create lightweight, strong and super elastic 3D printed metallic nanostructured materials with unprecedented scalability, a full seven orders of magnitude control of arbitrary 3D architectures.
