Gilding with graphene

Adding a single layer of graphene on top of metal leaves being used for a coating process known as gilding doubles the protective quality.

Stress and corrosion can act separately to induce cracking

Stress-corrosion cracking can occur when a metal is exposed to tensile stress and corrosion separately, as well as simultaneously.

A novel process for producing high-performance polymer gels combines spontaneous synthesis with fine control over molecular weight.

Researchers have developed a new method for 'printing' large-scale sheets of the 2D piezoelectric material gallium phosphate.

Precision-synthsized porous graphene is transformed into a semiconductor and the most efficient filter.

Nanoscale diamond needles can bend and deform reversibly, like bristles on a brush, before breaking.

New strategies could translate exceptional attributes of nanoscale fibers like carbon nanotubes and cellulose nanofibrils into macroscale materials.

Iron-based metal-organic framework (MOF) has microwave-absorbing properties.

Universal adhesive made up of equal amounts of liquid and solid polymers works in both air and underwater.

Using computational simulations, scientists have discovered the process by which an iron-based superconductor collapses under pressure.

Using video game controllers with electron microscopy, researchers have developed a way to move line defects around in bilayer graphene.

Researchers have produced a biosynthetic spider silk that is the first to replicate the strength and toughness of natural spider silk.

Researchers have developed a method for converting QR codes and other passive tags into three-dimensional features within 3D printed parts.

A novel platinum-gold alloy, 100 times more durable than high-strength steel, is believed to be the most wear-resistant metal in the world.

Researchers can fine-tune the electronic, mechanical and optical properties of 2D heterostructures by varying the angle between the crystals in real time.

Multi-material smart material prototype based on seed coat of some plants.

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.

Scientists have designed auxetic materials with smooth curves for distributing forces that can deform repeatedly.

The puzzle-like wavy structure of the seed coat found in some grasses could hold the secret to creating smart materials that are both flexible and strong.
