Graphene oxide's secret properties revealed at atomic level

Since its discovery, graphene has captured the attention of scientists and engineers for its many extraordinary properties. But graphene oxide—an oxidized derivative of graphene—largely has been viewed as graphene's inferior ...

New way to break some of the strongest chemical bonds

(PhysOrg.com) -- Scientists at Cornell University in the U.S. have found a new way of breaking two of the strongest chemical bonds, at ambient temperature and pressure, and this breakthrough could lead to low-energy processes ...

Graphene makes light work of aircraft design

(PhysOrg.com) -- Faster and lighter aircraft could be built using an incredible super-thin material just one atom thick, according to new research conducted at The University of Manchester.

A new kind of glue to bond polyethylene

A team of researchers from the University of Victoria and the University of British Columbia, both in Canada, has developed a new kind of glue that is able to bond polyethylene materials together. In their paper published ...

Amorphous diamond synthesized

A team of Carnegie high-pressure physicists have created a form of carbon that's hard as diamond, but amorphous, meaning it lacks the large-scale structural repetition of a diamond's crystalline structure. Their findings ...
