Materials chemistry news, April 2019

Researchers have shown that equations from graph theory can help to reveal a lot about the composition of different materials.

Researchers have developed an organic cathode that dramatically improves the stability and energy density of solid-state sodium-ion batteries.

On taking a closer look at how nonuniform particles self-assemble, engineers were surprised to discover that it happens in multiples phases.

Eutectic lithium salts can replenish the lithium ions that battery cathodes lose over extended use and restore their atomic structures.

Researchers have discovered why vanadium disulfide is unstable as a battery cathode material and developed a way to make it more stable.

Researchers have created ink for an inkjet printer from a highly conductive type of two-dimensional material called MXene.

3D printing in geometric designs and material composites for devices with novel optical properties

Researchers have not only unexpectedly detected polar skyrmions in a material with reversible electrical properties, but also found that they're chiral.

High-quality phosphorene nanoribbons for high-speed electronics

Measuring approach that characterizes materials at much smaller scales

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.
