Water-Free Way to Make MXenes Could Mean New Uses for the Promising Nanomaterials

Ten years after producing the first sample of the now widely studied family of nanomaterials, called MXenes, Drexel University researchers have discovered a different way to make the atom-thin material that presents a number of…

Scalable Manufacturing Process Spools Out Strips of Graphene

MIT engineers have developed a continuous manufacturing process that produces long strips of high-quality graphene. The custom-built, roll-to-roll CVD system makes graphene on copper foil at 1,000 °C. The results, published in the American Chemical Society (ACS), are the first demonstration of an industrial, scalable method for manufacturing high-quality graphene that is tailored for use

Inspired by Nature: Design for New Electrode Could Boost Supercapacitors’ Performance

Engineers from the University of California at Los Angeles ( UCLA), four other universities produce nanoscale device that mimics the structure of tree branches. Mechanical engineers from the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science and four other institutions have designed a super-efficient and long-lasting electrode for supercapacitors. The device’s design was inspired
