Carbon news, March 2019

A polymer composite containing graphene and nanoparticles can produce a more stable solid-electrolyte interphase in lithium metal batteries.

Sandwiching a layer of graphene between two layers of 2D boron nitride can produce superlattices that confer novel electrical properties.

By combining graphene with nano-ribbons of gold, researchers have developed an ultrasensitive biosensor for detecting disease-causing proteins.

Physicists have discovered that placing 2D semiconductors on top of each other and twisting them causes the emergence of novel hybrid properties.

Scientists have used directed evolution to enhance the optical properties of complexes of DNA wrapped around carbon nanotubes.
