Copper-silver-gold nanostructure gives carbon-capture-and-utilization a boost

“We thought if two metals were producing good results, then perhaps three metals would be even better”


Chemists have developed a nano-scale structure that combines copper, gold and silver to work as a superior catalyst in a chemical reaction whose improved performance will be essential if carbon capture and utilization efforts are to succeed in helping to mitigate global warming. In the face of ...

Impossible material made possible inside a graphene sandwich

Towards new 2D materials


Atoms bind together by sharing electrons. The way this happens depends on the atom types but also on conditions such as temperature and pressure. In two-dimensional (2D) materials, such as graphene, atoms join along a plane to form structures just one atom thick, which leads to fascinating ...
