Antioxidants get smallAntioxidants get small
Molecular compounds mimic effective graphene agents, show potential for therapies
Treated particles of graphene derived from carbon nanotubes have demonstrated remarkable potential as life-saving antioxidants, but as small as they are, something even smaller had to be created to figure out why they work so well. (January 26, 2017)

 

Boron atoms stretch out, gain new powersBoron atoms stretch out, gain new powers
Rice simulations demonstrate 1-D material’s stiffness, electrical versatility
Hold on, there, graphene. You might think you’re the most interesting new nanomaterial of the century, but boron might already have you beat, according to scientists at Rice University.  (January 26, 2017)
