Carbon news, October 2019

Researchers have found that submerging a polymer in liquid water can boost its ability to selectively remove carbon dioxide from gas mixtures.

Scientists have discovered that the magic angle at which two layers of graphene become superconducting is slightly wider than originally thought.

Researchers have found that graphene has many of the same mechanical properties as 3D graphite and is significantly thicker than widely believed.

As a step towards fabricating circuits from nanomaterials, engineers have created heterostructures from the 2D materials graphene and borophene.

Researchers have created a net-like structure, called a ‘nanochain’, of antimony, which can enhance lithium-ion charge capacity in batteries.

Films of platinum only two atoms thick supported by graphene could usher in fuel cell catalysts with unprecedented catalytic activity and longevity.

Coating chlorine-etched aluminum foil with carbon nanotubes created a material that is 10 times blacker than anything previously reported.
