Researchers have discovered that 'weak' Van der Waals interactions are still sufficient to form bumps in rigid silver nanosheets.

Researchers have found a new way to predict the properties of metal alloys based on reactions at the boundaries between their crystalline grains.

By replicating the design of a mammal bone, researchers have improved the structural integrity of the cathode for a sodium-ion battery.

By using nanosheets and graphene foam in an island-bridge design, researchers have developed stretchable micro-supercapacitor arrays.

Nanomaterial-based device that can heat or cool buildings

A new flexible, rechargeable, printable silver oxide-zinc battery can provide five to 10 times more power than current lithium-ion batteries.

Using triangular-shaped molecular building blocks, researchers have created an ultrathin porous membrane for filtering organic solvents.

Researchers have used nanosheets to create an inorganic material that can be converted from a hard gel to soft matter by changing the temperature.

Researchers have shown that flexible, ultrathin antennas made by spraying the 2D material MXene perform almost as well as copper antennas.

Researchers have discovered that metal-organic frameworks need to be flexible in order to separate gases efficiently.
