Scientists reveal 'magic boron clusters' on monolayer borophene

Researchers from the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, together with collaborators from the University of Science and Technology of China, have revealed the formation of boron clusters with magic numbers ...

Borophenes made easy

Synthetic organic chemists still aim to understand the scalable synthesis of elemental, two-dimensional (2D) materials beyond graphene. In a new report, Marc G. Cuxart and a team of researchers in physics, chemistry and electrical ...

Weak bonds are a strength in making borophene

Borophene may be done tantalizing materials scientists and start serving their ambitions, if a new approach by Rice University researchers can be turned into practice.

Engineers create double layer of borophene for first time

For the first time, Northwestern University engineers have created a double layer of atomically flat borophene, a feat that defies the natural tendency of boron to form non-planar clusters beyond the single-atomic-layer limit.
