MXene-polymer composite blocks electromagnetic pollution

new lightweight composite material composed of MXene and polystyrene beads could shield electromagnetic pollution

Scientists have developed a novel composite material for degrading nerve agents, which comprises a hydrogel and a metal-organic framework .

By utilizing a hydrogel that absorbs body fluids, researchers have produced a brain-machine interface that doesn't trigger a foreign body response.

By coating a mirror with a nanoscale layer of a conducting polymer, researchers have created structural colors for reflective color displays.

functionalized superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles or SPIONs capture plastic waste particles from contaminated water

Using a microscope, researchers have observed a special type of solid-to-solid phase transition in the crystal structure of polymeric microparticles.

By dispersing liquid metal droplets in an elastomer, researchers have created electrical circuits that are stretchy, self-healing and recyclable.

Researchers have fabricated an ultralight nanoarchitected carbon material that is more efficient at absorbing impacts than Kevlar of the same weight.
