Super cement's secret
Richland WA (SPX) Aug 31, 2016
Simple cements are everywhere in construction, but researchers want to create novel construction materials to build smarter infrastructure. The cement known as mayenite is one smart material - it can be turned from an insulator to a transparent conductor and back. Other unique properties of this material make it suitable for industrial production of chemicals such as ammonia and for use as semiconductors in flat panel displays. The secret behind mayenite's magic is a tiny change in its chemical co ... read more
