Carbon news, August 2019

Scientists have come up with a novel protocol for enhancing hexagonal-boron nitride, which is notoriously difficult to modify, with carbon chains.

In the presence of a moiré pattern, electrons in graphene organize themselves into stripes, providing a link with superconductors.

Segregated sections of ‘zigzag’ and ‘armchair’ facets on carbon nanotubes growing from a solid catalyst are more stable than a circular arrangement.

Graphene membranes covered in polymeric chains are better at capturing carbon dioxide than previous high-performance membranes.
