Characterization news, November 2016

Scientists have come up with a new way to produce two-dimensional nanomaterials by dissolving layered materials in liquids.

A novel silicone polymer gel makes an environmentally-friendly, inexpensive, long-lasting ice-repellent coating.

high-strength, creep resistant nanocrystalline Cu-Ta alloy could improve turbine engine efficiency and reduce carbon footprint

size, surface charge, composition and now shape of a nanoparticle determine how easily it can slip inside a cell

Scientists have synthesized a novel carbon material by using high pressures – rather than high temperatures – to initiate chemical reactions.

By using a very hot pressing temperature, scientists have created a novel thermoelectric material with an unusually high power factor.

Using a novel nanomechanical platform, scientists have discovered that the 2D material molybdenum diselenide is far more brittle than graphene.

Scientists have managed to create an ultra-strong material by 'fusing' together multiwall carbon nanotubes.

Fluctuations in the amount of a particular precursor in a two-dimensional alloy can influence the ordering of the atoms of the other components.

Hydrogenation proceeds differently over single-layer graphene compared with few-layer graphene, and also requires defects or edges.

Scientists have used a laser-heating technique to fabricate a new class of crystalline solid known as a rotating lattice single crystal.

Researchers have smashed silver microcubes at high speeds to see how deforming their crystalline structures could make them stronger and tougher.

High pressures applied by a novel nanocrystalline-diamond anvil could lead to the creation of as yet unknown new materials.
