Engineers advance understanding of graphene's friction properties (9/22/2014)

Engineers advance understanding of graphene's friction propertiesOn the macroscale, adding fluorine atoms to carbon-based materials makes for water-repellant, non-stick surfaces, such as Teflon. However, on the nanoscale, adding fluorine to graphene had been reported to vastly increase the friction experienced when sliding against the material. Through a combination of physical experiments and atomistic simulations, a University of Pennsylvania team has discovered the mechanism behind this surprising finding, which could help researchers better design and control the surface properties of new materials. ...> Full Article


Graphene paints a corrosion-free future (9/21/2014)

A thin layer of graphene paint can make impermeable and chemically resistant coatings which could be used for packaging to keep food fresh for longer and protect metal structures against corrosion, new findings from the University of Manchester show. ...> Full Article

Molecular self-assembly controls graphene-edge configuration (9/17/2014)

Molecular self-assembly controls graphene-edge configurationA research team headed by professors Patrick Han and Taro Hitosugi at the Advanced Institute of Materials Research discovered a new bottom-up fabrication method that produces defect-free graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) with periodic zigzag-edge regions. This method, which controls GNR growth direction and length distribution, is a stepping stone towards future graphene-device fabrication by self-assembly. ...> Full Article


Buckyballs and diamondoids join forces in tiny electronic gadget (9/16/2014)

Buckyballs and diamondoids join forces in tiny electronic gadgetScientists have married two unconventional forms of carbon -- one shaped like a soccer ball, the other a tiny diamond -- to make a molecule that conducts electricity in only one direction. This tiny electronic component, known as a rectifier, could play a key role in shrinking chip components down to the size of molecules to enable faster, more powerful devices. ...> Full Article


Doped graphene nanoribbons with potential (9/15/2014)

Doped graphene nanoribbons with potentialGraphene is a semiconductor when prepared as an ultra-narrow ribbon -- although the material is actually a conductive material. Researchers from Empa and the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research have now developed a new method to selectively dope graphene molecules with nitrogen atoms. ...> Full Article


Rethinking the basic science of graphene synthesis (9/14/2014)

Rethinking the basic science of graphene synthesisA new route to making graphene has been discovered that could make the 21st century's wonder material easier to ramp up to industrial scale. Graphene, which has super strength and the ability to conduct heat and electricity better than any other known material, has potential industrial uses that include flexible electronic displays, high-speed computing, stronger wind-turbine blades, and more-efficient solar cells, among other uses now under development. ...> Full Article

Decoding the role of water in gold nanocatalysis (9/12/2014)

Decoding the role of water in gold nanocatalysisResearchers from the University of Houston and Trinity University have, for the first time, provided direct evidence of a water-mediated reaction mechanism for the catalytic oxidation of carbon monoxide. The work used gold nanoparticles and titanium dioxide as a catalyst to speed the process and determined that water serves as a co-catalyst for the reaction that transforms carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide. ...> Full Article

Nano-pea pod model widens electronics applications (9/9/2014)

Periodic chain-like nanostructures are widely used in nanoelectronics. Typically, chain elements include the likes of quantum rings, quantum dots, or quantum graphs. Such a structure enables electrons to move along the chain, in theory, indefinitely. Now, a new study, published in EPJ B, identifies ways of disturbing the periodicity of a model nanostructure to obtain the desired discrete energy spectrum with localized electrons. ...> Full Article
