Improving plastic recycling by modifying its carbon–hydrogen bonds

Researchers have found a way to introduce sulfur into lithium-ion batteries, making them more sustainable and allowing them to store more energy.

Researchers have discovered how to change the atomic structure of the thermoelectric material tin selenide with intense pulses of laser light.

Researchers have developed a solid chlorine-based electrolyte with high ionic conductivity and low electronic conductivity.

Researchers have created a 2D polymer material that is tougher than bulletproof glass and stronger than steel.

Researchers have fabricated complex branched nanostructures covered in graphene, which could be used for applications such as storing hydrogen.

Researchers have developed a novel spin-coating technique for producing perovskite photovoltaic materials on an industrial scale.

A novel catalyst can transform a mixture of three monomers into well-defined, ordered diblock terpolymers in a single step.
