Polymers and soft materials news, February 2020

Researchers have found why some topological materials are 'fragile', unable to conduct current on their surface, and how to restore their conductivity.

Using a low-powered laser, researchers have been able to fabricate graphene features as small as 12µm onto the surface of a polymer.

A novel co-polymer that can conduct ions and is also highly permeable to oxygen could make an ideal membrane for use in hydrogen fuel cells.

Researchers incorporated protein pores found in cell membranes at high density into polymer sheets to produce highly efficient filtration membranes.

By utilizing cross-linker molecules that form sticky ends when cleaved, researchers have been able to fuse different cross-linked polymers together.
