Curbing the flammability of epoxy resin

In a paper to be published in a forthcoming issue of Nano, a team of researchers from Henan University have investigated the flame retardant performance of epoxy resin using a boron nitride nanosheet decorated with cobalt ...

Technique to synthesize monolayer films

A NIMS research group has developed a novel technique to synthesize monolayer films composed of neatly tiled two-dimensional materials, such as oxide nanosheets and graphene, on substrate surfaces in as quickly as one minute.

Energy storage solution combines polymers and nanosheets

A new, lightweight composite material for energy storage in flexible electronics, electric vehicles and aerospace applications has been experimentally shown to store energy at operating temperatures well above current commercial ...

Stable, highly conductive 2-D nanosheets of boron nitride

An international group of researchers has arranged 2D nanosheets of boron nitride, the "white graphene", into membranes with a significant level of conductivity and chemical and thermal stability up to 90°C.
