Materials chemistry news, December 2018

A new nanocomposite anode material can produce lithium-ion batteries that are more suitable for use in large devices such as electric vehicles.

Peptides show 2D materials that are barrier-free

2D materials assemble one row at a time to skip the energy barrier

A novel fuel cell catalyst comprising cobalt-platinum alloy nanoparticles on a composite substrate uses much less platinum than current catalysts.

Natural spider silk gives up some of its secrets

A new catalyst made of nanometer-thin sheets of metal carbide can generate hydrogen from water just as efficiently as platinum-based catalysts.

Microfluidic foam generation system for enabling customizable and "wet" foams in tiny amounts

Nuclear Materials & Energy has been accepted for indexing in Clarivate’s Science Citation Index Expanded.

By studying how peptides assemble, researchers have discovered that some materials can avoid the nucleation barrier by growing one row at a time.

Scientists have developed a blend of two polymers, one conducting and one insulating, that can conduct electricity at temperatures up to 220°C.

Congratulations to Prof M Stanley Whittingham.

By adding sodium to a lead-free all-inorganic perovskite, physicists have produced a single material that can produce white light.

Scientists have developed a liquid crystal elastomer with auxetic properties, meaning it gets thicker when stretched.

Multiferroics and topological materials have produced a new energy-efficient transistor called a magneto-electric spin-orbit (MESO) device.
