The United Kingdom's tough budget for science may force researchers to pick winners and losers. But can it work?
Aluminium is regarded as a simple system in which to test for phenomena occurring at high pressure. Ab initio calculations now show that this metal undergoes a surprising transition to an incommensurate structure when it is subjected to extremely high pressures.
A new material designed from first principles and subsequently synthesized and characterized in the laboratory may shed light on why there is much more matter than antimatter in the Universe.
The functionalization of crystalline porous materials is frequently limited to groups inert to the microscopic structure. Photoconversion of dormant precursors into highly reactive species shines light on the problem.
Directed assembly of molecular precursors allows the fabrication of graphene nanoribbons with atomic precision.
Imprinting molecular memory on the surface of polymer nanoparticles creates artificial antibodies that can recognize and neutralize a toxic peptide in vivo.
Friction is rarely studied at high sliding speeds between surfaces. However, simulations now suggest that gold clusters on atomically flat graphite can enter a new regime of ballistic friction, featuring a peculiar anticorrelation between translation and rotation.
The versatility and potential of conjugated organic materials continues to amaze, with their unique — and sometimes unexpected — properties being continuously discovered and harnessed by scientists in an attempt to use them in functional devices.
