‘My co-author is based in North Korea’

Article written by Jennifer Newton

The challenges of working with scientists in the world’s most secretive state

Aron Walsh has never met his new collaborators; so far, their only contact has been via email. He’s never even spoken to them on the phone. A picture he tracked down on the internet is the only reason he has a rough idea of what they look like. That’s because his co-authors live in North Korea.

Source: © Shutterstock North Korea leaves a dark space on the planet at night

Walsh leads the materials design group at Imperial College London, UK. ‘I work on perovskite solar cells, a topic that has attracted global interest,’ he explains. ‘But I noticed that some of my papers had been cited by a group with an affiliation in North Korea, which made me curious because I wasn’t aware that mainstream research in the physical sciences was activethere.’

Influence of water intercalation and hydration on chemical decomposition and ion transport in methylammonium lead halide perovskites

Tofu works as tissue-engineering scaffold

Article written by Jennifer Newton

Garlic, ginger and chilli swapped for fibroblast cells

A potential tissue-engineering scaffold cooked up by scientists in China has tofu as its central ingredient. The bean curd’s nutrient content and porous structure means it can support growing cells, then be implanted without causing toxicity issues.

Tofu scaffold preparation

Extracellular matrix mimics for growing cells for transplantation need to be nontoxic, biocompatible and biodegradable in the body. Reasoning that foods should tick those boxes, Zhipeng Gu and Jun Wu from Sun Yat-sen University, and their colleagues, decided to test tofu as a tissue scaffold.

Evaluation of tofu as a potential tissue engineering scaffold

Materials Chemistry & Science conference

Journal of Materials Chemistry B is proud to support the Materials Chemistry & Science conference in Toronto, Canada.

The conference on Materials Chemistry & Science will serve as a platform for the scientific community to meet experts and exchange ideas.

Research in materials chemistry and science may focus on a specific material. Some of the research areas include: Computational Materials Science, Biomaterials, Ceramics, Composites, Photonics and Defense Purpose Materials. Due to the dramatic rise in energy demands, researchers have also focused on the energy materials for better future.

Materials Chemistry provides the link between atomic, molecular and supramolecular behavior and the useful properties of a material. It lies at the core of many chemical industries. It involves the use of chemistry for the design and synthesis of materials with interesting or potentially useful physical characteristics, such as magnetic, optical, structural or catalytic properties.

For more information about the conference, see the conference website: https://materialsscience.chemistryconferences.org/

2018 International Conference of Young Researchers on Advanced Materials

Journal of Materials Chemistry A, B and C and Materials Horizons are pleased to support the 2018 International Conference of Young Researchers on Advanced Materials (ICYRAM2018).

This conference aims to give researchers from around the world the opportunity to engage and network with peers, industry and friends, in the field of advanced materials.  Specifically ICYRAM2018 gives a platform for researchers upto 15 years post-PhD to present their R&D.  From the 4th to 8th of November 2018, Adelaide in South Australia will be the global focus for the scientific presentations, conversations, and chance meetings that will set forth the future discoveries and innovations to drive society forward. ICYRAM2018, the 4th edition of ICYRAM, will build on the original mission by providing a fair and equitable event for all early stage researcher’s to meet, discuss and network in a safe and welcoming environment.  Whether they be specialised materials researchers or those who utilise and apply materials to their R&D – ICYRAM2018 welcomes all.

Important Dates

  • 30th March 2018 – Abstract submission deadline
  • 30th June 2018 – Early bird registration closure

For more information and how to submit an abstract please visit the conference website
