A Match Made in a Reactor: Skoltech and Aalto Researchers Collaborate on Carbon Nanomaterials

Smartphones with curved screens, super stretchable speakers, and keyboards that can be folded and rolled to a tiny film.

These might all seem futuristic, but such innovative products might soon be available on the market, thanks to nano materials research performed at Skoltech in Moscow and Aalto University in Finland by joint teams of scientists.

  Skoltech and Aalto Researchers Collaborate on Carbon Nanomaterials.

A paper devoted to single-shell carbon encapsulated iron nanoparticles (SCEINs) supported on single-walled carbon nanotubes was published in Angewandte Chemie together with researchers from Aalto University. SCEIN/SWNTs are a highly promising novel electrocatalytic material that could replace platinum in electrolysers.

The Perfect Defect: Researcher Unveils Nanowire Growth Mystery

Growing

Nano-wires have fascinated and intrigued researchers for decades. These extremely thin and elongated structures (10−9 meter) are considered to be promising materials for high efficiency electronic devices. They are particularly useful in chemical and biological sensors, solar cells, field emission devices, and lasers. But crucial parts of the process that guide their growth remained a mystery. Now Professor Albert Nasibulin, a researcher at Skoltech, teamed up with colleagues from Denmark and Finland to reveal new facts about the behavior of nano-wires during metal oxidation: the process occurs without catalysts and is guided by planar defects. Simply put, faults serve as both guides and engines for growth. The researchers published their findings in the scientific journal Nano Letters. These could help future efforts to control the properties of nano-wires.
