How can adsorption-induced changes of surface stress in nanopores be determined experimentally?
A new two-dimensional material
Combining silica (SiO2) with silicon-carbide (Si2C3) to produce a new porous film – Silicatene
Molecular functionalization of surfaces for device applications
Surface molecular functionalization combines many challenges: from characterizing, understanding and utilizing the surface properties and microscopic chemical entities, to judicious adsorption schemes enabling controlled tailoring of surface and interfacial properties.
Image of the week: model systems for chemisorption
Today’s Image of the Week comes from a recent JPCM paper exploring a model system looking at alkali metal on metal surfaces.
