Marking where to cut ‘gummy’ metals

Applying a permanent marker, glue or tape to gummy metals such as aluminum makes them much easier to cut for industrial applications.

Large-area graphene membrane can separate gas mixtures

For the first time, chemical engineers have developed a large-area graphene membrane that can separate gas mixtures with a high-efficiency.

Join the Mendeley group for further discussion.

A graphene coating can control water evaporation by suppressing the rate on hydrophilic surfaces and accelerating it on hydrophobic ones.

By mixing and matching different materials, researchers have created a window coating that can prevent excessive heating and generate electricity.

Altering the composition of a layered halide material allows researchers to vary its magnetization continuously between in-plane and out-of-plane.

Using a novel coating process, scientists have been able to develop a highly effective water-repellent coating based on a short-chain polymer.

Researchers have discovered that, under lateral compression, graphene forms sharp, saw-tooth kinks with interesting electrical properties.

Elsevier's extended Materials Today family also delivered very strong results.

By infusing a magnetic fluid in a micro-structured solid substrate, researchers have created a dynamic surface with reconfigurable topography.
