Novel lipid-like peptoids can spontaneously form a membrane with similar properties to cell membranes found in nature.

Scientists have combined graphene with molybdenum disulfide to create an atomically-thin transistor.

Using rod-shaped bacteria to introduce nanoscale wrinkles into graphene causes it to conduct electrons differently in perpendicular directions.

Treating lithium-rich cathode materials with carbon dioxide to create surface oxygen vacancies can improve their energy storage capacity.

Scientists have developed a new method for determining how well artificial photosynthesis materials will weather harsh environments.

A new 2D layered perovskite has outstanding stability and more than triple the power conversion efficiency of previous versions.

Scientists have studied the pangolin to learn the secrets of its protective outer armor.
