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.

Dental decay gives up its secrets

Advanced synchrotron small-angle and wide-angle X-ray scattering reveals how dental caries evolve and the changes in structure of enamel at the nanoscale.

A 2D tungsten ditelluride bilayer develops a spontaneous electrical polarization that allows it to undergo ‘ferroelectric switching’.

Simple, universal reflux pre-treatment and sonication method produces measurable amounts of two-dimensional quantum dots from bulk raw materials.

Catalytically active Pd nanoclusters inside organic molecular cages avoids aggregation and other problems.

By mixing nanocrystals with polymers and ligands, scientists have found a way to switch between a liquid-like state and a solid-like state.

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

Novel all-solid-state batteries based on thin films benefit from low resistance at the interface between the electrode and the solid electrolyte.

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

Niobium tungsten oxides with a complex crystalline structure allow lithium ions to move through them at higher rates than typical electrode materials.

The first experimental realization and structural investigation of 2D vanadium disulphide has revealed a new vanadium sulphide compound.

A new material derived from crab shells and tree fibers has the potential to replace the flexible plastic packaging used to keep food fresh.

Publishing the proceedings from leading conference series.

By doping alumina crystals with neodymium ions, engineers have developed a new laser material that can emit ultra-short, high-power pulses.

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.

Join the Mendeley group for further discussion.

Researchers have found that a novel hybrid improper ferroelectric possesses ferroelectric, magnetoelectric and optical properties.
