Chemists put a novel twist on carbon nanotube fibers

Twisting films of carbon nanotubes produces short lengths of strong, conductive fibers in about an hour, making this process much faster than spinning.

New 3D printing process can control fiber orientation in composites

A novel 3D printing method can yield unprecedented control over the arrangement of short fibers embedded in polymer matrices.

Incorporating hexagonal boron nitride between layers of calcium silicate should produce a tough, durable ceramic that is resistant to heat and radiation.

A novel process called gel electrospinning can produce ultrafine polymer fibers that are exceptionally strong and tough.

Asymmetrical polymer particles imprinted with DNA are able to bind together in a spatially defined manner for use in biomedicine and 'soft robotics'.

Applying pressure at the nanoscale to two layers of graphene transforms them into a super-hard, diamond-like material, termed diamene.

Lithium-ion batteries designed to be safer in an accident.
