Metals and alloys news

Applying high pressures and temperatures to elements like potassium and sodium produces a new, stable state of matter that is both solid and liquid.

A coating of graphene can stop oxygen escaping from the cathode of a lithium battery, helping to prevent the battery from catching fire.

Scientists have developed a model for predicting the shape of metal ‘islands’ sandwiched between or below 2D materials such as graphene.

Scientists used advanced microscopy to monitor atoms as they rearrange in real-time during the synthesis of intermetallic nanoparticles.

A hot-drawing technique for processing plastics can create transparent polythene film that is stronger than aluminium but a fraction of the weight.

An environmentally friendly deep eutectic solvent can extract valuable elements from the metal oxides commonly used as cathodes in lithium-ion batteries.

Researchers have developed a 'hybrid' cathode for lithium-sulfur batteries that combines an intercalation type material with a conversion type material.

Scientists have found a way to place catalysts inside the tiniest pores of different host materials, a bit like fitting a model ship inside a bottle.

Scientists have theorized a new ‘oil-and-vinegar’ approach for inducing spherical nanoparticles to self-assemble into unusual architectures.

‘living glue’ inspired by marine organisms like barnacles and mussels works underwater or in highly damp or humid conditions

A new microfluidic system for synthesizing perovskite quantum dots reduces manufacturing costs and can be tuned on demand to any color.

Researchers have discovered the strongest topological conductor yet, in the form of thin crystal samples with a spiral-staircase structure.

fast-screening of potential non-noble metal two-dimensional catalysts for hydrogen evolution reaction

Scientists have identified the causes of degradation in a nickel-rich layered cathode material in lithium-ion batteries, as well as possible remedies.

Strength of metallic alloys that improves at cryogenic temperatures

A polymer composite containing graphene and nanoparticles can produce a more stable solid-electrolyte interphase in lithium metal batteries.

Scientists have used a new technique called ultrafast surface X-ray scattering to visualize the motion of atoms in a 2D material.
