Lithium-calcium-silicate bioceramic hat could be a promising biomaterial for reconstructing defects and damage at the cartilage-osteochondral interface.

Marking where to cut ‘gummy’ metals

Applying a permanent marker, glue or tape to gummy metals such as aluminum makes them much easier to cut for industrial applications.

A novel polymer material can change its structure in response to light, converting from a rigid substance to a softer one that can heal itself.

By examining general grain boundaries, engineers have shed new light on the mechanisms behind sulfur embrittlement of nickel.

Nearly a third of the reaction products generated during fission of U235 in light-water reactors are unwanted gases.

Unlike with graphene, the boundaries between different structural phases of borophene, a 2D form of boron, retain the material's metallic nature.

Researchers have developed a way to fabricate soft, porous materials via the self-assembly of metal-organic polyhedra made of rhodium atoms.

Join the Mendeley group for further discussion.

A new microscopy technique can track microstructural changes in materials in real time as they are exposed to extreme heat and stress.

By using an ion beam to twist and bend a nanometer-thick layer of metal, scientists have created nanodevices for manipulating light.

Researchers have discovered that entangled, long-chain polymers in solutions relax at two different rates after processing.

Researchers have used a novel cold sintering process to produce, for the first time, a composite made from a ceramic and the 2D material MXene.

Using a high-speed electron camera, researchers have recorded the most detailed atomic movie of gold melting after being blasted by laser light.

Elsevier's extended Materials Today family also delivered very strong results.

By infusing a magnetic fluid in a micro-structured solid substrate, researchers have created a dynamic surface with reconfigurable topography.
