Carbon news, February 2019

Perspectives on the materials research landscape

Two new reports, now available for download.

Graphene's electrical properties can be engineered by covering it with another 2D material and then patterning it with an array of nanoscale holes.

For the first time, researchers have used block copolymers to produce carbon fibers with uniformly sized and spaced pores for energy storage.

Combining porous carbon fibers with manganese oxide produces a supercapacitor with high energy density and high charge-discharge rates.

Infusing graphene foam with materials such as plastic, rubber and cement produces tough composites with a wide range of possible applications.

Sulfur polymers that could replace carbon in plastics

A ruthenium-based catalyst shows markedly better performance than commercial platinum catalysts at splitting water for hydrogen production.

By coating two different fibers with carbon nanotubes, scientists have created a fabric that can regulate the amount of heat passing through it.

Combining graphene and white graphene in a ceramic should produce a material that alters its conductivity when subject to different types of strain.

By incorporating carbon nanotube-based electrodes between multiple layers of elastomer, researchers have produced a novel shape-shifting material.

Researchers have shown that adding carbon nanotubes to a rubbery polymer semiconductor can increase its carrier mobility.

Tiny, electrically charged crinkles in graphene sheets can interact with molecules on the surface, causing the molecules to line up along the crinkles.

Researchers have developed a new oil-based coating for metal that self-heals within seconds when scratched, scraped or cracked.

Researchers have turned graphene oxide into a soft, moldable play dough that can be shaped and reshaped into free-standing 3D structures.
