Carbon news, June 2017

Scientists have developed a novel form of glassy carbon that is a ultrastrong, lightweight, elastic and electrically conductive.

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

A new method based on a superconductor and a microwave resonator can characterize the electronic properties of graphene.

Latest metrics show strong increases for the Materials Today family.

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

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

An anode made of graphene and carbon nanotubes can prevent the formation of dendrites in lithium-metal batteries.

A material comprising titanium oxide molecules on a porous spherical surface can improve the efficiency of sulphur-based cathodes.

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