Taking their inspiration from shells and grapefruits, engineers have created what they say is the first manufactured non-cuttable material.

By varying the amounts of two different monomers, researchers have developed polymer materials that can produce a shape-memory hand.

graphene antennas could offer a flexible metal-free option for wearable electronics

Researchers have shown that thin sheets of material with periodic cuts can be used to mold an inflating balloon into pre-programmed shapes.

A carbon nanotube film possesses a combination of thermal, electrical and physical properties that could make it of use for next-generation smart fabrics.

Researchers have developed a three-layer anti-reflection coating for making plastic sheets conductive and more transparent.

Researchers have used a supercomputer to perform real-time simulations of wear and friction on alloys of copper and nickel at atomic scales.

Researchers have identified a small number of impurity atoms that may contribute to the strength of enamel, but also make it more soluble.

Researchers have developed a lightweight, multifunctional nanofiber material that can protect wearers from projectiles and extreme temperatures.

X-ray measurements have revealed how the fine-scale structure of a granular material influences the behavior of waves propagating through them.

polymer fiber-reinforced bone cements stabilize dental implants more effectively after extraction

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.
