Materials chemistry news

Mildred Dresselhaus sadly passes away at the age of 86.

Researchers have discovered a ceramic material that contracts on heating by more than twice the previous record-holding material.

Researchers have found a perovskite mineral with the right properties to extract energy from multiple sources at the same time.

Using macrophages with flow cytometry, a rapid screening method can determine how medical nanoparticles interact with the immune system.

Adding two different additives to the same polymer semiconductor offers a simple way to modify its electrical properties.

A new way of mass-producing graphene uses just three simple ingredients: hydrocarbon gas, oxygen and a spark plug.

A new computational design strategy can pinpoint optimal materials for coating the cathode in lithium-ion batteries to protect it from degradation.

Synthetic nanoparticles can achieve the same level of structural complexity, hierarchy and accuracy as biomolecules such as proteins.

New synthesis mechanism transforms bulk metal alloys directly into nanowires.

A new oxidatively-modified carbon material is highly efficient at absorbing radioactive metal cations such as cesium and strontium.

Scientists have developed a simple, inexpensive technique for producing oxide nanowires directly from bulk powders at ambient conditions.

A titanium surface covered in fluorinated nanotubes can repel blood and so could reduce blood clotting by medical implants.

Simple strategy for creating solutions of two-dimensional nanomaterials could make large-scale production of future devices easier and cheaper.

Biomimicry of the beetle helps material design.

Porous 3D form of graphene produced using heat and pressure

Structural defects and jagged surfaces of nanoparticles shown to be key to catalysis.

Researchers have developed a technique in which nanoscale perovskite particles self-assemble to produce more efficient, stable and durable LEDs.

Scientists have produced the most tightly knotted physical structure ever known, which could lead to a new generation of advanced materials.

Depending on the synthesis conditions, gold nanoclusters can self-assemble to form 2D hexagonally-ordered layers or 3D capsid structures.
