For the first time, researchers formed a rare-earth complex on a gold surface and then rotated it with a scanning tunneling microscope.

Water splitting on the cheap

Researchers have shown that ruthenium dioxide nanoparticles doped with nickel make a cheap and effective anode catalyst for splitting water.

A novel composite coating made of the 2D material MXene and vanadium in a polymer solution can absorb and disburse electromagnetic radiation.

Researchers have come up with a speedy way to produce an iron-nickel alloy found in meteorites that could replace rare-earth magnets.

A new class of carbide materials is capable of producing tunable plasmonic properties while withstanding incredibly high temperatures.

Researchers have developed a shape-memory material made of ceramic rather than metal, which can operate at much higher temperatures.
