New Boron Nanomaterial Could Be A Very Real Possibility
2014-01-28 10:55:00

Brown University Graphene, a sheet of carbon one atom thick, may soon have a new nanomaterial partner. In the lab and on supercomputers, chemical engineers have determined that a unique arrangement of 36 boron atoms in a flat disc with a hexagonal hole in the middle may be the preferred building blocks for “borophene.” Findings are reported in Nature Communications. Researchers from Brown University have shown experimentally that a boron-based competitor to graphene is a very real...
