Flashing creates hard-to-get 2D boron nitride

Rice University scientists who "flash" materials to synthesize substances like graphene have turned their attention to boron nitride, highly valued for its thermal and chemical stability.

Creating heat-tolerant, stable boron nitride nanotube fibers

A Rice University team led by professors Matteo Pasquali and Angel Martí has simplified handling of the highly valuable nanotubes to make them more suitable for large-scale applications, including aerospace, electronics ...

A new age of 2.5D materials

Scientists are exploring new ways to artificially stack two-dimensional (2D) materials, introducing so-called 2.5D materials with unique physical properties. Researchers in Japan reviewed the latest advances and applications ...

Measuring the 'wettability' of graphene and other 2D materials

Wettability of a material is the ability of a liquid to maintain contact with a solid surface, and it is proportional to hydrophilicity and inversely proportional to hydrophobicity. It is one of the most important properties ...
