Deuteration of biopolymers in bionanocomposites

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.

International collaboration to develop better nuclear fuels and materials

´╗┐Research using atomic scale computer simulations at ANSTO on accident tolerant nuclear fuels and cladding materials has the potential to design better components that can handle a ‘loss of coolant’ scenario  in light water reactors (LWRs).
