Under extreme pressure, matter can exhibit novel or counter-intuitive phenomena such as superconductivity at unusually high-temperature, unexpected chemical stoichiometries and reaction kinetics, or new material phases.
As Nature Materials turns 20 we look back at how material science and the scientific publishing landscape have evolved, and ask experts to provide their views on how to address grand societal challenges.
