Graphitic carbon nitride is a 2D material whose structure is similar to graphene, except that it consists of carbon and nitrogen atoms rather than carbon alone. This means it retains some of the properties of graphene, but rather than being electrically conductive, it is a semiconductor with a significant electron band gap. This gives it … More What is Graphitic Carbon Nitride?
A little bit of a side project here as it is not nanomaterial related (yet). I have been working on developing a rear wheel drive powertrain for “RestoMod” classic cars using the Alfa Romeo “Busso” 24 valve engine. To those unfamiliar with this, it is one of the iconic performance engines of our time, originally … More “Project Alfatar” On The Road
Here is some great news, as I do a lot of work for Carbodeon….

EU Referendum: My own reasons for voting “IN” Small, high tech businesses trading across Europe Since 2007 I have been almost entirely concerned with high tech SME companies, which have all been highly dependent on free access across the European markets, as well as a willingness for investors to make investments into or out of … More My 3 Reasons for voting IN
A little taste of what we are working on: Some epoxy resin materials containing dispersed NanoDiamond materials to improve various mechanical and thermal properties.
I also have my own small lab that supports a few of those programmes. … More Fairland Technology’s Lab
It’s not the main focus of my business, but it means a lot to me. I’m transplanting an example of the glorius Alfa Romeo “Busso” 24 valve V6 engine into my 1969 Reliant Scimitar GTE. … More My GTE: “AlfaTar”
I will put some proper blog posts up in due course. Here is an engine cutaway picture showing a wear resistant low friction coating on the pistons. A large proportion of my career has been spent manufacturing, selling, developing or thinking about pistons. … More Pistons
