Long-sought carbon nanomaterial found in zeolite pores

Scientists have discovered that negatively curved carbon sheets known as schwarzites can be synthesized inside the pores of zeolites.

Seed coat suggests design principles for novel smart materials

The puzzle-like wavy structure of the seed coat found in some grasses could hold the secret to creating smart materials that are both flexible and strong.

Scientists have discovered that tiny distortions in the crystal lattice of iron pnictide help it to enter a superconducting state as it's cooled.

Quantum computing could benefit from the finding that electrons can be trapped between graphene nanoribbons with different topologies,

Researchers have found that ‘rebar graphene’, in which graphene is reinforced with carbon nanotubes, is more than twice as tough as pristine graphene.

A new artificial intelligence model can accurately detect different atomic structures in metallic materials with defects.

Using a form of Raman microscopy developed for biomedical studies, scientists have explored the mechanism behind dendrite growth in lithium batteries.

A cobalt-tungsten catalyst starts growing carbon nanotubes with various chiral angles but redirects almost all of them toward one fast-growing variant.

Researchers have developed a new way for modeling to the atomic level how metallic glasses behave as they fracture.

Publishing the proceedings from leading conference series.

By examining general grain boundaries, engineers have shed new light on the mechanisms behind sulfur embrittlement of nickel.

Unlike with graphene, the boundaries between different structural phases of borophene, a 2D form of boron, retain the material's metallic nature.

Nearly a third of the reaction products generated during fission of U235 in light-water reactors are unwanted gases.

Join the Mendeley group for further discussion.

A graphene coating can control water evaporation by suppressing the rate on hydrophilic surfaces and accelerating it on hydrophobic ones.

Using nanowires of a molybdenum-germanium alloy, scientists have been able to explore the transition from a superconducting to a normal metal state.
