COVID-19 Analysis

The outlook of stockholders toward the chemical industry is likely to change this year more so than before. The conventional overperformance of the chemical industry has decelerated over recent years and turned into a troubling deficit unrelated to the COVID-19 crisis. The chemical industry's incomes are coupled to GDP development, and the upper line of chemical companies will plunge a little more than the GDP. In contrast, companies downstream in the individual value chains will evacuate their stockrooms. In return, the lift after the depression of the crisis will be much advanced than the increase in GDP because the very same downstream businesses will need to restock.

Recent Developments

June 2021- McGill University's researchers' team developed a hybrid membrane, allowing osmotic (blue) energy systems. Osmotic energy, also called blue energy, uses the energy naturally released as the mixtures with different salinities mix- the meeting of fresh and saltwater. The method of capturing this blue energy is coupled with a selectively permeable membranes that permits only on of the element from the mixture to pass though it- either the dissolved salt ions or the water molecules.
To date, the present blue energy projects worldwide face issues due to the inefficiency of the present membrane technology. To resolve these issues, the scientist have built a membrane using exotic nanomaterials, which have ensured promise in terms of the volume of power they can produce in comparison with their size.

The challenge of making these devices useful in real-life applications remains constant.

Lead author Khadija Yazda said that the product is focused on remedying the inherent mechanical fragility issues while capitalizing on the extraordinary selectivity of thin 2D nanomaterials by designing a hybrid membrane produced from hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) monolayers supported by silicon nitride membranes.

Dec 2020
- AIXTRON has advanced, built, and fitted a new, detailed industrial-grade reactor for graphene and hexagonal Boron Nitride (hBN), giving out 200 mm epi-wafers. The novel CVD tool was advanced as an allotment of the GIMMIK research project and has recently gone into operation. The GIMMIK project plans to assess graphene layers' production under industrial conditions, mark weak points, and design ways to eliminate error sources. Also, the transmission of graphene properties to electrical mechanisms and a material setting is tested. In parallel, approaches for the contact-free, large-area description of graphene will be advanced, which do not yet exist.

Aug 2020 - Cornell academics recently utilized an ultrathin graphene and hexagonal boron nitride 'sandwich' to produce a tiny magnetic field sensor that can operate over a greater temperature range than previous sensors sensing tiny changes in magnetic fields that might otherwise get lost within a more substantial magnetic setting. Nowack's lab focuses on operating scanning probes to oversee magnetic imaging. One of their go-to probes is the superconducting quantum interference device, or SQUID, which works well at low temperatures and in minor magnetic fields.
