Crystalline materials news

In some water-splitting catalysts, oxygen comes from within the catalyst material itself, as well as from the surrounding water molecules.

Crystals that form spontaneously on exposure to carbon dioxide could offer a new option for carbon capture and storage strategies.

Defects in cement that catch layers of the material as they move past each other can produce concrete that is tougher and stronger.

A new one-dimensional, core-shell-type crystalline wire made from organic-inorganic hybrid materials can emit light efficiently.

Submissions for the 8th annual Reaxys PhD Prize are now open.

Researchers have been able to create a high-pressure form of germanium, known as ST12, in a large enough sample size to confirm its characteristics.

Scientists have used tiny diamonds known as use diamondoids to assemble atoms into the thinnest possible electrical wires, just three atoms wide.

The redistribution of energy in quasicrystals takes place as a chain reaction that resembles the forked branches of a lightning strike.

Scientists have developed a novel way to synthesize nano-sized Lonsdaleite, hexagonal diamonds that are much harder than regular diamonds.

Record-breaking perovskite solar

Scientists have discovered that step edges in topological crystalline insulators can produce electrically conducting pathways.

Synthesizing cement particles in a variety of shapes, including cubes and spheres, can produce concrete that is less porous and more durable.
