Flake-like nanoparticles offer reliable rust protection

Research scientists have developed a special type of flake-like zinc-phosphate nanoparticles. These nanoparticles are ten times as long as they are thick. As a result of this anisotropy, the penetration of gas molecules into the metal is slowed down.

Researchers create perfect nanoscrolls from graphene's imperfect form

A research team fabricated nanoscrolls made from graphene oxide flakes and was able to control the dimensions of each nanoscroll, using both low- and high-frequency ultrasonic techniques. The scrolls have mechanical properties that are similar to graphene, and they can be made at a fraction of the cost.

Three-way battles in the quantum world

In phase transitions, for instance between water and water vapour, the motional energy competes with the attractive energy between neighbouring molecules. Physicists have now studied quantum phase transitions in which distant particles also influence one another.
