By controlling how nanoparticles self-assemble at three different length scales, scientists have produced a tough and strong polymer nanocomposite.

Researchers have found a way to make deformable, heat-resistant sponge-like materials from nanoscale ceramic fibers.

A combination of C60, graphene and hexagonal boron nitride has similar properties to silicon but better chemical stability, lightness and flexibility.

A new spectroscopy method can monitor the effects of radiation on materials in real time, including changes in thermal and mechanical properties.

Latest metrics show strong increases for the Materials Today family.

High pressure could be the key to making high-entropy alloys made of common metals with a so-called hexagonal close-packed structure.

Find out more about the collaboration between HardwareX and Materials and Design journals.

Nacre, or mother-of-pearl, is a natural material with hard and soft components that attains high stiffness, strength, and fracture toughness.

Graphene oxide can crosslink and reinforce rubber in a single easy step to improve mechanical properties.

Oxide materials that can both bend and 'breathe' in high temperatures.

Adding different gases to a novel way for making graphene can make the material superhydrophobic or superhydrophilic.

A newly-developed printable elastic conductor retains high conductivity even when stretched to as much as five times its original length.

After more than 60 years of trying, scientists have reported the first organic synthesis of a carbon nanobelt.

A new 3D printing process can produce stretchable electronic devices that could let robots feel and be printed directly on human skin.

Scientists have expanded the range of functional temperatures for ferroelectrics by creating the first-ever polarization gradient in a thin film.

Oxide materials that expand and contract in response to applied electric charge could produce actuators that work in extremely hot environments.

Scientists have developed organic semiconductor nanosheets that can easily be removed from a growth substrate and placed on other substrates.

ptychographic X-ray computed tomography uses X-rays instead of light or electrons to examine samples non-destructively

graphene oxide membranes could offer a simple means of filtering out unwanted salts and impurities from drinking water
