The process used to gently remove liquid from a gel to produce an aerogel.
Learn about the science of sols, gels, supercritical drying, functionalization, and more.
The basis of how gels are formed. Learn about the basics of the chemistry used to make aerogels.
In pursuit of science and aerogel windows, follow the adventures of aerogel in zero-gravity!
You don’t always need supercritical drying to make aerogels. Learn how aerogels can be made at atmospheric pressure and the trade-offs of doing this.
Aerogels put the fun in functionalization! Learn how you can install new features into aerogels by attaching molecules to the skeletal surface of the aerogel.
