Researchers have developed carbon nanotube pores that can exclude salt from seawater. The team also found that water permeability in carbon nanotubes with diameters smaller than a nanometer exceeds that of wider carbon nanotubes by an order of magnitude.
When hemoglobin undergoes just one mutation, these protein complexes stick to one another, stacking like Lego blocks to form long, stiff filaments. Could this assembly method be common, or even easy to reproduce?
Researchers have fabricated highly deformable and stretchable conductors utilizing a Coil Flash Thermal Evaporation (CFTE) of gold nanoclusters that form robust thin metallic layers and maintain conductivity up to 200% on PDMS and 150% on textured rubber.
