Researchers have developed a smart bandage comprising a flexible polymer embedded with electronics and medication for treating chronic wounds.

Star-shaped plankton inspire complex structures

marine planktonic organism, Acantharia, has a star-shaped endoskeleton of 20 spicules in a unique geometric pattern

energy efficient process uses bacteria to produce bone-like porous CaCO3-based composites

Researchers have developed a stronger, greener form of concerete made from extra-terrestrial dust, potato starch and a pinch of salt.

A new technique can reveal how materials respond – at the nanoscale and in near-real time – when they are scratched, indented or experience shear stress.

Understanding the complexities of complex materials

Researchers have developed a liquid-metal-filled organogel composite with high electrical conductivity, high stretchability and self-healing properties.

A new polymer material made from interconnected microscale knots is far tougher than identically structured but unknotted materials.

Researchers have calculated that 2D ferroelectric materals will bend in response to an electrical stimulus, allowing them to act as a nano-scale switch.

Researchers have developed a new and improved method for incorporating phase-change materials into construction materials.

By incorporating bacteria into a hydrogel, researchers have developed a 3D-printable bioink that can mineralize over the course of a few days.
