  • Bottom-up Synthesis of Crystalline 2D Polymers

    Scientists at the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed) at TU Dresden have succeeded in synthesizing sheet-like 2D polymers by a bottom-up process for the first time. A novel synthetic reaction route was developed for this purpose. The 2D polymers consist of only a few single atomic layer more

  • Graphene is 3D as well as 2D

    Graphene is actually a 3D material as well as a 2D material, according to a new study from Queen Mary University of London. Realising that it is a 3D material is important for understanding its mechanical properties and for developing novel graphene-based devices. Often hailed as a 'wonder material' more

  • Can't get thinner than this: synthesis of atomically flat boron sheets

    Since its rediscovery and characterization in 2004, graphene has been the focus of countless research efforts across multiple fields. It is a very versatile material consisting of a two-dimensional (2D) carbon network; in other words, it comprises a thin sheet of carbon that has a thickness of one a more

What is graphene?

What is graphene? Graphene is the world's first 2D material which was initially isolated in 2004. It was discovered after scientists at The University of Manchester separated one atomic layer of graphite using simple sticky tape. This short animation takes a look at how graphene was isolated and ... more

2-D layered devices can self-assemble with precision

  • Chemical sensing with 2D materials

    During the last decade, two-dimensional materials (2DMs) have attracted great attention due to their unique chemical and physical properties, which make them appealing platforms for diverse applications in opto-electronic devices, energy generation and storage, and sensing. Among their various extra more

  • Periodic and nonperiodic chiral self-assembled networks from 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylic acid on Ag(111)

    Surface-catalyzed reactions provide a versatile route to synthesizing new 2D materials. Here, we show that the statistical nature of an activated reaction can lead to a diversity of intermolecular bonding motifs through partially-reacted molecules. With increasing annealing, we observe different per more

  • Preparation of 2D material dispersions and their applications

    Extensive research on two-dimensional (2D) materials has triggered the renaissance of an old topic, that is, the intercalation and exfoliation of layer materials. Such top-down exfoliation produced 2D materials and their dispersions have several advantages including low cost, scalable production cap more
