Extracting high-purity gold from electrical and electronic waste

Korea relies on imports for most of its metal resources, and in recent years, due to resource depletion and rising raw material prices, 'circular resources' that recycle waste metal resources have emerged. In response, SK ...


How to make chips produced in the cutting process useful

Compared with other cutting methods, EV-chiseling could generate metallic microstructures with ultra-high aspect ratio, and the cutting chip could be directly transformed into unique microstructures.

In chemistry, a metal (Greek: Metallo, Μέταλλο) is an element, compound, or alloy characterized by high electrical conductivity. In a metal, atoms readily lose electrons to form positive ions (cations); those ions are surrounded by delocalized electrons, which are responsible for the conductivity. The thus produced solid is held by electrostatic interactions between the ions and the electron cloud, which are called metallic bonds.
