Nanomaterials news, December 2018

Peptides show 2D materials that are barrier-free

2D materials assemble one row at a time to skip the energy barrier

A new nanocomposite anode material can produce lithium-ion batteries that are more suitable for use in large devices such as electric vehicles.

A novel fuel cell catalyst comprising cobalt-platinum alloy nanoparticles on a composite substrate uses much less platinum than current catalysts.

Microfluidic foam generation system for enabling customizable and "wet" foams in tiny amounts

By patterning and then shrinking a polymer scaffold, researchers have come up with a way to fabricate nanoscale, 3D objects of nearly any shape.

Moth helps develop nano-antibiotics

By studying how peptides assemble, researchers have discovered that some materials can avoid the nucleation barrier by growing one row at a time.

Scientists have demonstrated electronic switching in an ultrathin topological material that can carry a charge with nearly zero loss at room temperature.

Due to popular demand, Nano Today is extending the deadline of its annual cover competition.

Conventional computers could be replaced by massively parallel, low energy, more intelligent brain-like processors using artificial synaptic devices

Engineers have developed a method for making atom-flat sensors from 2D materials and then transferring them to curved surfaces.

Congratulations to Prof M Stanley Whittingham.

Physicists have synthesized borophene with large-area single-crystal domains on copper substrates, making it suitable for electronic applications.

Circularly polarized light delivered at a particular angle to C-shaped gold nanoparticles produced a plasmonic response unlike any discovered before.

Scientists have discovered that silicon contamination is the reason why graphene often doesn't perform as well as predicted.

bridging the gaps between aligned single-walled carbon nanotubes with metal atoms boosts electrical conductivity in a new direction

Nanoantibiotics could provide new ways of treating drug-resistant 'superbugs' and reducing the amounts of traditional antibiotics used

making tiny, nanoscale holes into graphene sheets and removing them again could hold the key to manufacturing high-quality structures
