  1. Fundamental transport mechanisms, fabrication and potential applications of nanoporous atomically thin membranes

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    This Review examines the development of nanoporous atomically thin membranes, focusing on fundamental mechanisms of gas- and liquid-phase transport, membrane fabrication techniques, and advances towards practical applications.

  2. Tunable sieving of ions using graphene oxide membranes

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    Ion permeation and selectivity of graphene oxide membranes with sub-nm channels dramatically alters with the change in interlayer distance due to dehydration effects whereas permeation of water molecules remains largely unaffected.

  3. Graphene transistors

    Graphene is being investigated as a candidate material for post-silicon electronics. This article reviews the properties of graphene that are relevant to transistors, and discusses the trade-offs between them.

  4. Sulfated glycopeptide nanostructures for multipotent protein activation

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    Highly bioactive supramolecular nanostructures displaying sulfated glycopeptides on their surfaces were designed in order to mimic the polysaccharides that bind and activate a plethora of proteins in mammalian biology during development and tissue regeneration.

  5. Janus monolayers of transition metal dichalcogenides

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    A novel synthetic approach makes it possible to grow MoS2 monolayers where S is fully replaced with Se atoms only in the top layer.

  6. More carbon and less salt

    We take a closer look at recent developments in research on various strategies to use carbon nanostructures for water desalination.
  7. High electron mobility and quantum oscillations in non-encapsulated ultrathin semiconducting Bi2O2Se

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    Air-stable, non-encapsulated Bi2O2Se ultrathin films grown by chemical vapour deposition display high electron mobility and exceptional semiconducting transport properties, making the observation of quantum oscillations possible and suggesting potential applications in electronics.

  8. Improved air stability of perovskite solar cells via solution-processed metal oxide transport layers

    Skip authorsShow fewer authors

    Using metal oxides for both the hole- and electron-transport layers in perovskite solar cells significantly improves their stability compared with devices containing organic transport layers.
