Scientists have developed a luminescent metal-organic framework that can detect and capture heavy metal toxins such as lead and mercury.

Exciting the polaritons in 2D materials can cause electromagnetic energy to be focused down to a tiny volume.

When confined within carbon nanotubes, water can freeze solid even at high temperatures that would normally set it boiling.

Illuminating photonic crystals with laser light generates patterns that reveal how light beams of different colors bend as they pass through the crystal.

Nanoparticles can break down hazardous organic dyes into harmless molecules.

Professor Allan S. Hoffman wins 2017 Acta Biomaterialia Gold Medal.

A low-cost, scalable spray-printing process can fabricate high-quality, isolated organic single crystals on almost any substrate.

Scientists have come up with a new way to produce two-dimensional nanomaterials by dissolving layered materials in liquids.

A novel silicone polymer gel makes an environmentally-friendly, inexpensive, long-lasting ice-repellent coating.

high-strength, creep resistant nanocrystalline Cu-Ta alloy could improve turbine engine efficiency and reduce carbon footprint

size, surface charge, composition and now shape of a nanoparticle determine how easily it can slip inside a cell

Scientists have synthesized a novel carbon material by using high pressures – rather than high temperatures – to initiate chemical reactions.

By using a very hot pressing temperature, scientists have created a novel thermoelectric material with an unusually high power factor.

Using a novel nanomechanical platform, scientists have discovered that the 2D material molybdenum diselenide is far more brittle than graphene.

Scientists have managed to create an ultra-strong material by 'fusing' together multiwall carbon nanotubes.

Hydrogenation proceeds differently over single-layer graphene compared with few-layer graphene, and also requires defects or edges.

Fluctuations in the amount of a particular precursor in a two-dimensional alloy can influence the ordering of the atoms of the other components.
