Energy resources: Geothermal energy
Energy from sources other than fossil and nuclear fuels is to a large extent free of the concerns about environmental effects and renewability that characterise those two sources. Each alternative source supplies energy continually, whether or not we use it. This unit considers one of these alternative sources, geothermal energy derived from the interior heat of the Earth, and the potential for this alternative to supplant fossil and nuclear fuel use to power social needs fast enough to avoid th

Energy resources: Hyropower
Hydroelectric energy is ultimately solar energy converted through evaporation of water, movement of air masses and precipitation to gravitational potential energy and then to the kinetic energy of water flowing down a slope. That energy was harnessed for centuries through the use of water wheels to drive mills, forges and textile works, before being supplanted by coal-fired steam energy. The unit considers hydropower as a potential source of useable energy. An OpenLearn Resource - Time: 3 hour

Chromatography
An introductory site about chromatography that does not go into great depth. However, the simulation of paper chromatography is worth exploring with students as it illustrates that the separation of compounds relies on the difference in the solutes affinities for the mobile phase relative to the stationary phase. Because of its apparent simplicity, this simulation has significant pedagogical potential and could be used in a variety of ways in class to explore the factors governing chromatograp

Carbon nanotube reinforced carbon nano composite fibrils by electro-spinning
Fibers of Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) are the precursor of 90% of produced carbon fibers. It is generally thought that the better the degree of molecular orientation in the original PAN fiber, the better the mechanical properties, in particular the modulus of the resultant fibers. Electro-spinning is a unique process in that it is able to produce polymer fibers having diameters ranging over seve ral orders of magnitude, from the micrometer range typical of conventional fibers down to the nanometer r
