  • Scientists grow carbon nanotube forest much longer than any other

    Today, a multitude of industries, including optics, electronics, water purification, and drug delivery, innovate at an unprecedented scale with nanometer-wide rolls of honeycomb-shaped graphite sheets called carbon nanotubes (CNTs). Features such as light weight, convenient structure, immense mechan more

  • New electrode materials for the oxidation of water

    By splitting water electrochemically, green hydrogen can be produced, which can be used as fuel, energy storage and for chemical reactions. This way, we can decrease our dependence on fossil resources and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, the electrolysis of water consumes a lot of energy. E more

  • A leap in using silicon for battery anodes

    The same material you'll find at the tip of a pencil--graphite--has long been a key component in today's lithium-ion batteries. As our reliance on these batteries increases, however, graphite-based electrodes are due for an upgrade. For that, scientists are looking to the element at the heart of the more

"Evolving electronics" could lead to new electrical devices

Scientists at Durham University, UK, have “taught” materials to form electrical pathways in order to solve a simple problem, which could eventually lead to new electronic devices.Taking their inspiration from nature, where living organisms evolve to perform complex tasks, the researchers trained ... more

Carbon nanotube transistors outperform silicon for first time ever

In a world first, a team of University of Wisconsin-Madison materials engineers have created carbon nanotube transistors that outperform state-of-the-art silicon transistors.A big milestone for nanotechnology, this breakthrough could enable longer battery life, faster wireless communication and ... more

Graphene

You may not have been aware, but this week is Graphene Week 2015, which marks a yearly week-long conference at the University of Manchester based around the emerging science and technological applications of graphene. This seemed as good a time as any to take a look at graphene: what it is, why some more

Nanotechnology Day & Everyday Uses of Nanotechnology

October 9 is National Nanotechnology Day in the US, as it’s 10/9 in the American date format (and one nanometre is 10–9 metres). This month’s edition of Periodic Graphics in C&EN takes a look at a selection of the nanotechnology that’s already made its way into our everyday lives. more
