Pentagonal nanorods show catalytic promise
Pentagonal nanorods have a unique morphology that confers interesting compositional and shape-dependent properties—including excellent stability and high catalytic activity—that make them excellent candidates ...
Graphene enhances many materials, but leaves them wettable
Graphene is the thinnest material known to science. The nanomaterial is so thin, in fact, water often doesn't even know it's there.
