Carbon news, December 2017

Researchers have created tiny electronic ‘graphene tweezers’ that can grab biomolecules and nanoparticles floating in water with incredible efficiency.

Mind the gap with semiconducting graphene nanoribbons

Researchers have succeeded in growing semiconducting graphene nanoribbons with a regular armchair edge and incorporating them into nanotransistors.

Researchers have managed to control the fluorescence emitted by carbon nanotubes by attaching hexagonal carbon molecules to them.

Scientists have developed a technique for combining carbon nanotubes with ceramics and polymers to form novel composite materials.

A new, cost-effective catalyst made from nickel, tine and ceria can convert carbon dioxide and methane directly into synthesis gas.

The optical and photocatalytic properties of carbon dots can be precisely tuned by controlling the positions of nitrogen atoms in their structure.

Graphene’s unique properties makes it a potential candidate for transparent, stretchable electronics in displays, wearable health monitors, or soft robots.

Why don’t tree frogs slip off wet leaves? The answer lies in their sticky toe pads, which are made up of a mixture of hard and soft materials.

Pre-treatment process controls the chirality of SWNTs by tuning the degree of oxidation of the Co catalyst during growth.

Atomically precise heterojunctions in graphene nanoribbons could enable the design of a new generation of more efficient and powerful nanoelectronics
