Materials chemistry news

For the first time, researchers have managed to create an anti-ordered state with liquid crystals, where they avoid aligning along a certain direction.

Physicists have designed an evolutionary process that allows a wide range of nanomaterial morphologies to be synthesized from tungsten disulphide.

Researchers have synthesized tiny, individual, flexible phosphorene nanoribbons from crystals of black phosphorous and lithium ions.

Applying high pressures and temperatures to elements like potassium and sodium produces a new, stable state of matter that is both solid and liquid.

A metal-organic framework made of the DNA base adenine can lock the DNA base thymine within its cavities for chemical reactions.

By carefully stretching polymers like polyethylene, researchers have been able to produce colorful films with a range of heat-radiating capabilities.

An environmentally friendly deep eutectic solvent can extract valuable elements from the metal oxides commonly used as cathodes in lithium-ion batteries.

Researchers have developed a 'hybrid' cathode for lithium-sulfur batteries that combines an intercalation type material with a conversion type material.

Scientists have found a way to place catalysts inside the tiniest pores of different host materials, a bit like fitting a model ship inside a bottle.

Researchers have developed a wood membrane than can generate an ionic voltage from a small temperature differential.

A new dual-polymer hydrogel able to respond dynamically to its environment could find use in a variety of ‘soft robotic’ and biomedical applications.

Researchers have found a layered material made from sodium, tin and arsenic that can act as both an electron-holder and a hole-holder.

‘living glue’ inspired by marine organisms like barnacles and mussels works underwater or in highly damp or humid conditions

A new microfluidic system for synthesizing perovskite quantum dots reduces manufacturing costs and can be tuned on demand to any color.

Researchers have discovered the strongest topological conductor yet, in the form of thin crystal samples with a spiral-staircase structure.

fast-screening of potential non-noble metal two-dimensional catalysts for hydrogen evolution reaction

Scientists have identified the causes of degradation in a nickel-rich layered cathode material in lithium-ion batteries, as well as possible remedies.

A metal-organic framework proved better at soaking up the pollutant PFOS from contaminated water when it contained additional nanometer-sized holes.
