New 3D Form of Graphene May Lead to Flexible Electronics

graphene-monash-elastic

Graphene can support 50,000 times its own weight and can spring back into shape after being compressed by up to 80%. Graphene also has a much lower density than comparable metal-based materials. A new super-elastic, three-dimensional form of graphene can conduct electricity, and will probably pave the way for flexible electronics.

Olympicene, the Smallest Possible Five-Ringed Structure

olympicene-afm

The smallest five-ringed structure possible is about 100,000 times thinner than a human hair, and it was created by a collaboration between the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), the University of Warwick and IBM Research in Zürich. Scientists used a combination of synthetic chemistry and modern imaging techniques to create olympicene.
