Researchers produce 2-D sheets of tin atoms

The merits of graphene, a 2-D sheet of carbon atoms, are well established. In its wake have followed a host of post-graphene materials—structural analogues of graphene made of elements such as silicon or germanium.

The making of biorelevant nanomaterials

The interactions of biological macromolecules such as nucleic acids, proteins, and polysaccharide–protein conjugates can be mimicked by artificial polyelectrolytes. Such synthetic polyionic complexes are expected to serve ...

New insights on graphene

Graphene floating on water does not repel water, as many researchers believe, but rather attracts it. This has been demonstrated by chemists Liubov Belyaeva and Pauline van Deursen and their supervisor Grégory F. Schneider. ...

Panning for silver in laundry wastewater

Silver nanoparticles are being used in clothing for their anti-odor abilities but some of this silver comes off when the clothes are laundered. The wastewater from this process could end up in the environment, possibly harming ...

Cheap, sustainable battery made from tree bark tannins

(Phys.org)—Tannins may be best known for their presence in red wine and tea, but in a new study researchers have demonstrated for the first time that tannins from tree bark can also serve as battery cathode materials. As ...

Graphene in zero G promises success in space

In a successful collaboration between the Graphene Flagship and the European Space Agency, experiments testing graphene for two different space-related applications have shown extremely promising results. Based on these results, ...
