Materials called metal-organic frameworks can be spun into fibres to filter particulate pollutants from air

Researchers have developed a family of polymer materials that come alive when hit with light – bending, rotating and even crawling on surfaces.

Scientists have characterized carp scales down to the nanoscale, potentially allowing their toughness to be replicated in synthetic structural materials.

By taking advantage of the strength of graphene, researchers have doubled the toughness of a ceramic material used to make solid electrolytes.

Researchers have developed a method for self-assembling nanostructures with gamma-modified peptide nucleic acid, a synthetic mimic of DNA.

New structural supercapacitor electrode produced from nanofiber materials

New polymer materials for 3D printing can switch between different shapes in response to changes in temperature, electric current or stress.

By combining tandem repeat proteins with the 2D material MXene, researchers have produced a composite material with novel electrical properties.

Slippery kidney stone test

Researchers have developed a new artificial intelligence system that can determine material properties such as toughness in a matter of milliseconds.

Scientists have used graphene to help develop an opal-like crystalline material that could be the cornerstone of next generation smart sensors.

hollow carbon loaded with drugs can be given a boost by bombarding them with microwaves and laser irradiation to treat tumors
