A scientist spent thirty years investigating how craftsman were able to render the beautiful red colors in Bizen and Arita pottery. This research revealed the important role of iron oxide particles for producing the colors. Now he is...Show More Summary
The 270 square foot Noa house features a hexagonal floor plan and is built entirely from wood, with the exterior boards treated with iron oxide for a silvery aged finish. Since each side of the house, from the walls to the roof panels, are identically sized
After I scrolled thick black lines on this bead, I applied my hand-drawn lacy iron oxide decal and re-fired. I found it in a bowlful of beads which was sitting in my living room and thought I'd offer it for sale. Find it here.
I was surprised to find these had 26 views since uploading them late last week. They were originally this lovely purple shade and I added some original homemade iron oxide decals of my own drawings and refired them. The decals came out perfectly and I am very happy with them. Show More Summary
I grew up in Western Pennsylvania (coal country), and I can remember an orange-tinged stream close to my grandmother's house. The cause was Acid Mine Drainage, which contaminates waterways near coal mines with iron, creating biological dead zones. Show More Summary
Howdy and hello! I just added this sweet bead to my etsy store. It's a glaze I have played with in the past and I think it is visually more interesting with the addition of iron oxide decals, of my own creation of course.2014 is exciting. Show More Summary
?750 Ma banded iron formation from the Arabian-Nubian Shield—Implications for understanding neoproterozoic tectonics, volcanism, and climate changeAuthors:Stern et alAbstract:Neoproterozoic Banded Iron Formation (BIF) from Sawawin, NW Saudi Arabia and the Central Eastern Desert of Egypt define the 200 × 100 km Arabian-Nubian Shield (ANS) BIF basin.

Inspired by the storied strength of the common ant, a team of scientists at New York University has engineered hematite beads to carry cargo ten times their size. The iron oxide beads may greatly influence the process of microfabrication,...Show More Summary
Researchers have created magnetic replicas of sunflower pollen grains using a wet chemical, layer-by-layer process that applies highly conformal iron oxide coatings. The replicas possess natural adhesion properties from the pollen while gaining magnetic behavior.
The effect of exudates from Phaeodactylum tricornutum on the iron chemistry has been studied at pH 8.0 and 7.5 in seawater and seawater enrichment with the diatom exudates. At pH 8.0 the rate constant for the oxidation of Fe(II) decreased by 29% in the presence of the exudates, while at pH 7.5, the rate constant decreased by 56%. […]
An inexpensive, new electrode made from iron oxide nanoparticles has the potential to notably extend the potential range of electric vehicles, according to the researchers that developed it. Along with being inexpensive, and capableShow More Summary
Next-generation lithium-ion batteries made with iron oxide nanoparticles could extend the driving distance of electric cars.
Michael Janner, 17, of Redlands, Calif. received the Innovation Exploration Award at the 2013 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair for his research on iron oxide nanocrystals. The award included a behind-the-scenes visitShow More Summary
Researchers show how nitrogen doped graphene can be rolled into perfect Archimedean nano scrolls by adhering magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles on the surface of the graphene sheets. The new material may have very good properties for application as electrodes in for example Li-ion batteries.
Scientists have observed the switching mechanism from a non-conducting to a conducting state in iron oxide (specifically, magnetite) with previously unrealized precision. This switching mechanism -- which, in oxides, proceeds in two consecutive steps and which is thousands of times faster than it is in current transistors -- has now been described.
By feeding stem cells tiny particles made of magnetized iron oxide, scientists can then use magnets to attract the cells to a particular location in the body.
Magnets could be a tool for directing stem cells' healing powers to treat conditions such as heart disease or vascular disease. By feeding stem cells tiny particles made of iron oxide, scientists at Emory and Georgia Tech can use magnets...Show More Summary
