Researchers observe how nanoparticles grow when exposed to helium
A team of researchers from the University of Leicester and France's G2ELab-CNRS in Grenoble have for the first time observed the growth of free nanoparticles in helium gas in a process similar to the decaffeination of coffee, ...
Researchers calculate electrical properties of carbon cones, other shapes
Flexing graphene may be the most basic way to control its electrical properties, according to calculations by theoretical physicists at Rice University and in Russia.

Project for computational screening of molecules could accelerate electrolyte discovery
A new breakthrough battery—one that has significantly higher energy, lasts longer, and is cheaper and safer—will likely be impossible without a new material discovery. And a new material discovery could take years, if ...
Machine learning algorithm makes impossible screening of advanced materials possible
Unlikely hydrogen bond discovered
As with magnets and alternating current, positively charged molecules never aim for one another. Indeed, similarly charged poles are repelled. Nevertheless, a team from the University of Copenhagen's Department of Chemistry ...
