Self-Organisation of Particles Leads to Hexagonal-Patterned 2D Nanohills

Self-Organisation of Particles Leads to Hexagonal-Patterned 2D Nanohills

Nanoscale worlds sometimes resemble macroscale roller-coaster style hills, placed at the tip of a series of hexagons. Surprisingly, these nanohills stem from the self-organisation of particles - the very particles that have been eroded and subsequently redeposited following the bombardment of semi-conductors with ion beams.

Carbon Dioxide Recycled into Polycarbonate Block Copolymers that can Aggregate into Nanoparticles

Carbon Dioxide Recycled into Polycarbonate Block Copolymers that can Aggregate into Nanoparticles

A future where power plants feed their carbon dioxide directly into an adjacent production facility instead of spewing it up a chimney and into the atmosphere is definitely possible, because CO2 isn’t just an undesirable greenhouse gas; it is also a good source of carbon for processes like polymer production.
