The Strange Behaviour Of Auxetic Foams
Using high resolution to understand the auxetic behaviour of a foam. As the foam is stretched it expands rather than contracts laterally
'Water-oozing' nanorods could be used to harvest water from the air
Researchers at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory accidentally created nanorods that expel water as humidity rises.
A chemically powered autonomous molecular nanomotor
A group of scientists at the University of Manchester in the U.K. has developed the first chemically powered autonomous molecular nanomotor—the motor mechanism is itself a transport medium ...
Spider Silk Inspires Creation of ‘Liquid Wire’
Scientists have discovered a previously unknown property of spider silk, and used it to create a remarkable new “hybrid” material. The new bio-inspired thread, which acts like both a solid and a liqui...
It’s like staring ‘into a black hole’: World’s darkest material will be used to make very stealthy aircraft, better telescopes
At a nondescript industrial park in south England, scientists have created a new super-black material -- fashioned out of carbon nanotubes -- that is so dark it's like
Supramolecular assembly
A supramolecular assembly or "supermolecule" is a well defined complex of molecules held together by noncovalent bonds. While a supramolecular assembly can be simply composed of two molecules (e.g., a...

Supermolecule
The term supermolecule (or supramolecule) was introduced by Karl Lothar Wolf et al. (Übermoleküle) in 1937 to describe hydrogen-bonded acetic acid dimers. The study of non-covalent association of com...
Intermolecular force
Intermolecular forces are forces of attraction or repulsion which act between neighboring particles (atoms, molecules or ions). They are weak compared to the intramolecular forces, the forces which ke...
