1890 events

  • The Critic (Vol. 16, March 1, 1890) reported that the American Society of Painters on Stone had been formed for the purpose of publishing work (lithographs) rather than exhibiting. Founding members of the group included Otto Bacher, Thomas Moran, Frederick Dielman, Reginald Cleveland Coxe, William Merritt Chase and Edward Moran. Carroll Beckwith was identified as president, and Montague Marks as Treasurer and Secretary.

February 14th, 1890.

At the regular meeting called for above date there was no quorum. There were present T. W. Wood – Thos Moran , R. Swain Gifford, Dr. L M Yale&W. H. Shelton. In order to make his Committee Report, a meeting was arranged with Mr Moran in the Chair subject to approval – Mr Moran reported that the rooms of the Union League Club could not be had by the Etching Club There was no official 1890 catalogue produced by the New York Etching Club, nor has documentation of an annual club exhibition been found. There was probably no official annual exhibition mounted by the club that year. The March 1890 issue of The Art Amateur (Vol. 22, No. 4), in a review of the annual American Water Color Society exhibition, reported, “The watercolorists, having gotten rid of the painters in black-and-white two or three years ago, have now dismissed in their turn the etchers’ club, and have thus their exhibition to themselves.”

Mr. Moran proposed in writing the name of Miss Ellen Oakford of New Haven Conn. for Membership.

The informal Meeting then adjourned

Mr Chapman and Mr Lauber came in after the Adjournment.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
in general
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
