Deuteration of biopolymers in bionanocomposites 02/07/2018

Carbon nanotubes have been incorporated into a blend of deuterated biopolymers, allowing for electrical conductivity of the polymer film. These polymers have potential implications as scaffolds supporting regrowth of damaged tissues and electrical conductivity can promote the re-growth of nerve cells on similar materials.

First publication from PELICAN and National Deuteration Facility 15/05/2018

The first paper has been published that utilised materials synthesised by the National Deuteration Facility for a study conducted on the cold neutron time-of-flight spectrometer PELICAN. Replacing hydrogen atoms with deuterium reduced the background from incoherent scattering, allowing the weak inelastic signal from a spin ½ ion to be studied.
