New Study Suggests Graphene Sheets Efficiently Shield Chemical Interactions

New Study Suggests Graphene Sheets Efficiently Shield Chemical Interactions

A collaborative research proposed that graphene sheets are capable of effectively shielding chemical interactions. This occurrence holds promise for applications such as the quality improvement of 2D materials by "de-charging" charged defect centers located on the surface of carbon materials. The ability to control the selectivity and activity of the supported metallic catalysts on the carbon substrate is another key feature.

Researchers Observe Light-Induced Lossless Electricity Transmission in Fullerenes

The general belief is that superconductors can only be used in a few applications as the finest of these materials tend to lose their resistance at -70°C. These days they are predominantly used in magnets for fusion devices, particle accelerators, and nuclear magnetic resonance tomographs.

Scientists Trap and Arrange Nanoparticles to Mimic Crystalline Structure of Diamond

Scientists Trap and Arrange Nanoparticles to Mimic Crystalline Structure of Diamond

Using bundled strands of DNA to build Tinkertoy-like tetrahedral cages, scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have devised a way to trap and arrange nanoparticles in a way that mimics the crystalline structure of diamond. The achievement of this complex yet elegant arrangement, as described in a paper published February 5, 2016, in Science, may open a path to new materials that take advantage of the optical and mechanical properties of this crystalline structure for applications such as optical transistors, color-changing materials, and lightweight yet tough materials.

Nanowires Made from Multiple Metal Oxides Enable Efficient Solar Energy Storage

Nanowires Made from Multiple Metal Oxides Enable Efficient Solar Energy Storage

By 2020, California aims to use 33% of energy from renewable sources. With the deadline nearing, researchers from all over the state are trying to identify new variable options. Solar energy is an attractive source, but it has to be converted into a storable form for widespread adoption. In a new study published in ACS Central Science, researchers have described the development of nanowires from multiple metal oxides that could address the problem.

Breakthrough Technique to Create Cubic Boron Nitride at Ambient Temperature and Air Pressure

A team of researchers from North Carolina State University have determined a new phase of boron nitride (Q-BN), which plays a vital role in both electronic displays and manufacturing tools. The team have come up with a new method for forming cubic boron nitride (c-BN) at ambient air pressure and temperatures. This method is used for a wide range of application, such as the develop,emt modern power grid technologies.

Scientists Fabricate Artificial Material with Structure Comparable to Graphene

An international team of physicists, guided by the University of Arkansas (U of A), has produced an artificial material having a structure similar to that of graphene. Graphene is one of the lightest, strongest, and most conductive materials known.

Hollow Crystal Spheres Could Lead to New Drug Delivery Platform

Hollow Crystal Spheres Could Lead to New Drug Delivery Platform

A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.
