Bilkent Research on Nano Friction Published in Nature Communications

Friction is a ubiquitous fact of nature. Without friction, we would not be able to walk, write with a pencil or play stringed instruments. On the other hand, friction is considered to be a major problem for many mechanical systems, where it causes unavoidable loss of useful energy and has drastic economic impact. Despite the [...]

“Nanotraps” for effective removal of lead(II) in water

“Nanotraps” for effective removal of lead(II) in water

Rapid development of global industrial activities has caused the increased release of heavy metal ions into water bodies, affecting human health and environmental safety due to their toxic and carcinogenic nature even at a very low concentration. The removal of toxic metal ions and accessibility of clean water remain a critical challenge to mankind in [...]
