A simple activity will demonstrate how chemistry is essential for creating consumer products – specifically liquid hand soaps – at the American Cleaning Institute’s (ACI) booth during the USA Science & Engineering Festival April 7-8 in Washington, D.C. At the ACI booth (#6436), students will visit a series of stations to learn about the function of several ingredients found in a liquid hand soap.

Making Rusty Polymers for Energy Storage

nanoflower_large.jpg

It's called a nanoflower, but if you could brush your cheek against its microscopic petals, you would find them cool, hard, and...rusty. Common rust forms the inner skeleton of these lovely and intricate nanostructures, while their outer layer is a kind of plastic. Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have developed a straightforward way to make this type of conducting polymer with high surface area that is likely to be useful for energy transfer and storage applications.
