Carbon news, November 2016

Using a database of materials, scientists have quantified the thermodynamic scale of metastability for almost 30,000 known materials.

Scientists have come up with a new way to produce two-dimensional nanomaterials by dissolving layered materials in liquids.

Carbon nanotubes promise electronic devices of the future that could outperform Si and GaAs technologies.

Scientists have synthesized a novel carbon material by using high pressures – rather than high temperatures – to initiate chemical reactions.

The discovery of a strong interaction between light and matter in semiconducting carbon nanotubes could lead to their use in electrically-pumped lasers.
