Polystyrene makes an impact under fire

Polystyrene thin films are twice as good as absorbing impact energy as other leading materials such as graphene.

Alloy beats hydrogen at its own game

New approach uses hydrogen to overcome hydrogen-embrittlement problem in alloys for applications in extreme conditions.

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-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.
