Intentional defects make for better reactions, researchers report

A defect is not always a bad thing. In fact, when it comes to improving the electrocatalysis process that produces clean-burning hydrogen gas, it may be a very good thing. Researchers based in China engineered an electrocatalyst—which ...

Making the structure of 'fire ice' with nanoparticles

Cage structures made with nanoparticles could be a route toward making organized nanostructures with mixed materials, and researchers at the University of Michigan have shown how to achieve this through computer simulations.
