By considering the environmental impact of materials through their whole life cycle, materials scientists can help develop more sustainable alternatives.
Concerns about the planet's health call for a careful evaluation of the environmental impact of materials choices. Life-cycle assessment is a tool that can help identify sustainable materials pathways by considering the burdens of materials both during production and as a product.
Paulo J. M. Monteiro, Sabbie A. Miller and Arpad Horvath provide an overview of the challenges and accomplishments in reducing the environmental burden of concrete production.
Xiuyan Li and K. Lu discuss a strategy, alternative to alloying, to tailor the mechanical properties of metals. By engineering defects, metals with bespoke performance might be obtained while reducing the materials' compositional complexity.
Large tensile pressure applied to the putative topological Kondo insulator SmB6 results in an expansion of the lattice in all directions, and a huge increase in the temperature range over which surface-dominated conduction can be observed.
A Pd4 cluster, supported by a metal–organic framework and formed by post-synthesis methods, shows high catalytic activity and selectivity for carbene-mediated reactions. This crystallographically precise material may lead to a large class of catalysts.
Exploring the minute mechanical deformations induced by electrical bias at the interface with electrolytes allows the identification of local crystallinity and distinguishing adsorption and intercalation of ions in electroactive polymers.
A method to realize regular patterns with nanometre precision during the synthesis of PtSe2 and CuSe monolayers has been developed.
