Characterization news, December 2015

A new process that uses vapor, rather than liquid, to grow metal-organic frameworks could lead to a new breed of powerful electronic devices.

Top 5 news items of 2015 from Materials Today.

For the first time, researchers have investigated how much electrical charge nanoparticles transfer to their support.

In their search for materials that can withstand supercritical ammonia, scientists tested 35 metals, two metalloids and 17 ceramic materials.

Tests on the toxicity of several graphene materials revealed that graphene oxide could make super-strong dental fillings that don't corrode.

Nanoscale octopods made of gold and palladium can do double duty as catalysts and plasmonic sensors.

A joint study carried out by Freeman Technology and Gerteis Maschinen + Processengineering AG has been carried out on Freeman’s FT4 Powder Rheometer.

Scientists have used scanning transmission electron microscopy to track atomic reconfigurations in individual platinum-cobalt nanoparticle catalysts.
