Clemson Research Takes Medical Test to Next Level

Greenville Online, May 24, 2015 Clemson University researchers say they have developed a new way to test urine that could help diagnose diseases in the future. Urine is the easiest of the body fluids to sample, said Ken Marcus, professor of chemistry. Unlike blood tests, no needles are required. But because there is so much salt in urine, it’s difficult …

New Material could Boost Batteries’ Power, Help Power Plants

You’re going to have to think very small to understand something that has the potential to be very big. A team of researchers, including Kyle Brinkman of Clemson University, developed a material that acts as a superhighway for ions. The material could make batteries more powerful, change how gaseous fuel is turned into liquid fuel and help power plants burn …
