Researchers have discovered how a nanocatalyst works at the atomic level

31-May-2019

The researchers of the Nanoscience Center (NSC) at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, and in the Xiamen University, China, have discovered how copper particles at the nanometre scale operate in modifying a carbon-oxygen bond when ketone molecules turn into alcohol molecules. Modification of ...

High-resolution imaging of nanoparticle surface structures is now possible

06-Aug-2018

Using scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM), extremely high resolution imaging of the molecule-covered surface structures of silver nanoparticles is possible, even down to the recognition of individual parts of the molecules protecting the surface. This was the finding of joint research between ...

Graphene forged into three-dimensional shapes

28-Sep-2017

Researchers from Finland and Taiwan have discovered how graphene, a single-atom-thin layer of carbon, can be forged into three-dimensional objects by using laser light. A striking illustration was provided when the researchers fabricated a pyramid with a height of 60 nm, which is about 200 times ...

Researchers synthesize atomically precise diamond-shaped nanoclusters of silver

13-Sep-2016

A wide international collaboration involving researchers from four countries - China, Australia, Germany and Finland - have managed to synthesize and characterize two previously unknown, record-large silver nanoclusters of 136 and 374 silver atoms. These diamond-shaped nanoclusters (see Figure), ...

How many gold atoms make gold metal?

14-Apr-2015

Researchers at the Nanoscience Center at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, have shown that dramatic changes in the electronic properties of nanometre-sized chunks of gold occur in well-defined size range. Small gold nanoclusters could be used, for instance, in short-term storage of energy or ...

Molecules do the triple twist

30-May-2014

An international research team led byProfessor Rainer Herges of the University of Kiel (Germany) and Academy Professor Kari Rissanen of the University of Jyväskylä (Finland) has managed to make a triple-Möbius annulene, the most twisted fully conjugated molecule to date. An everyday analogue of ...

Bending helps to control nanomaterials

26-May-2014

A new remedy has been found to tackle the difficulty of controlling layered nanomaterials. Control can be improved by simply bending the material. The mechanism was observed by Academy Research Fellow Pekka Koskinen from the Nanoscience Center of the University of Jyväskylä together with his ...
