Designing new nano-structured materials for solar energy and health

While methods for making nanostructured materials are often slow or energy intensive, self-assembly of nanoscale objects promises to be scalable and low-energy and could thus propel more...

Nanostructured Electrolytes and Ionogels

Ionic liquids (ILs) are salts that melt below or near room temperature due to frustration of the coulomb forces that stabilise the crystals, and can act as non-volatile solvents for more...
