Carbon news

Researchers have found that submerging a polymer in liquid water can boost its ability to selectively remove carbon dioxide from gas mixtures.

Scientists have discovered that the magic angle at which two layers of graphene become superconducting is slightly wider than originally thought.

Researchers have found that graphene has many of the same mechanical properties as 3D graphite and is significantly thicker than widely believed.

Researchers have created a net-like structure, called a ‘nanochain’, of antimony, which can enhance lithium-ion charge capacity in batteries.

Films of platinum only two atoms thick supported by graphene could usher in fuel cell catalysts with unprecedented catalytic activity and longevity.

Coating chlorine-etched aluminum foil with carbon nanotubes created a material that is 10 times blacker than anything previously reported.

Researchers have used computational techniques to identify 43 previously unknown forms of carbon that are thought to be stable and superhard.

Scientists have developed a highly durable fuel cell catalyst by using selenium to anchor platinum particles to their carbon support material.

Researchers report the first direct observation of transition carriers between different localization states within indium gallium nitride.

Graphene can provide a two-fold defense against mosquito bites, by acting as a physical barrier and blocking chemical signals.

Scientists have developed a practical method for measuring the conductivity of a single carbon nanotube, by splitting it into two halves.

Researchers have shown that a few layers of 2D materials can provide the same insulation in electronic devices as a sheet of glass 100 times thicker.

Engineers have developed a transistor made from linen thread, by coating the thread in carbon nanotubes and immersing it in an electrolyte gel.
