‘Deep learning’ agents can accurately determine a 2D material's physical characteristics, such as strength, from minimal data on its structure.

A coating of graphene can stop oxygen escaping from the cathode of a lithium battery, helping to prevent the battery from catching fire.

Scientists have developed a model for predicting the shape of metal ‘islands’ sandwiched between or below 2D materials such as graphene.

Researchers have developed a 'hybrid' cathode for lithium-sulfur batteries that combines an intercalation type material with a conversion type material.

Scientists have developed a novel 3D printing process for fabricating flexible conducting fibers on textiles, which can be used to harvest energy.

A polymer composite containing graphene and nanoparticles can produce a more stable solid-electrolyte interphase in lithium metal batteries.

Sandwiching a layer of graphene between two layers of 2D boron nitride can produce superlattices that confer novel electrical properties.

By combining graphene with nano-ribbons of gold, researchers have developed an ultrasensitive biosensor for detecting disease-causing proteins.

Physicists have discovered that placing 2D semiconductors on top of each other and twisting them causes the emergence of novel hybrid properties.

Scientists have used directed evolution to enhance the optical properties of complexes of DNA wrapped around carbon nanotubes.

Two new reports, now available for download.

Graphene's electrical properties can be engineered by covering it with another 2D material and then patterning it with an array of nanoscale holes.

For the first time, researchers have used block copolymers to produce carbon fibers with uniformly sized and spaced pores for energy storage.

Combining porous carbon fibers with manganese oxide produces a supercapacitor with high energy density and high charge-discharge rates.

Infusing graphene foam with materials such as plastic, rubber and cement produces tough composites with a wide range of possible applications.

Sulfur polymers that could replace carbon in plastics

A ruthenium-based catalyst shows markedly better performance than commercial platinum catalysts at splitting water for hydrogen production.

By coating two different fibers with carbon nanotubes, scientists have created a fabric that can regulate the amount of heat passing through it.

Combining graphene and white graphene in a ceramic should produce a material that alters its conductivity when subject to different types of strain.
