One study uncovers novel properties in two 2D materials

A single study has found that graphene displays superlubricity and that hexagonal boron nitride is as strong as diamond but lighter and more flexible.

Scientists have quadrupled the capacity of the anode in lithium-ion batteries by simply replacing graphite with silicon.

By sandwiching rare earth metals between layers of graphene, scientists have been able to control its band gap.

Scientists have developed a way to convert fallen leaves into a porous carbon material for use as a supercapacitor electrode.
