As the European Union embraces new members, the growth of European science requires effort on various fronts.
Despite great expectations, artificial cartilage constructs still represent a challenge for tissue engineers. A three-dimensional fibre–hydrogel material provides a breathrough in the design of scaffolds with mechanical properties that match those of native cartilage.
Over the past two decades, the optical recording industry has empirically improved the properties of phase-change materials for rewritable discs. Now a first step has been taken to use computational design to improve these materials.
Entanglement of interpenetrating metal–organic frameworks has been considered a drawback to porosity. However, the pore size of these structures can be controlled through framework dynamics to achieve selectivity and increased binding of ions and gases.
Soft matter has the remarkable ability to respond to stimuli in a variety of ways. Not only does this enable its application to existing scientific problems, but it also allows previously unimagined technological directions to be explored.
Exploiting the interplay between entropic and enthalpic contributions in block copolymer–nanoparticle blends permits construction of composites with specified structures. Disassembly can then provide well-defined structural units as building blocks for future applications.
(Nature Materials 5, 931–932 (2006) doi: 10.1038/nmat1792 In this News & Views article, Fig. 2 was missing; it should have appeared as shown here. Both Figs 1 and 2 should also be credited to M. M. J. Treacy.
