ACS on Campus: Empowering Early Career Researchers at NIT Calicut

ACS Publications set off to NIT Calicut in India on September 7, 2018,  to meet with local early career researchers and students. The event’s distinguished speaker list featured Professor Abhishek Dey, Associate Editor for ACS Catalysis and an Associate Professor at the Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science, as well as  Professor Thalappil Pradeep, an Associate Editor for ACS Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering and the Chair Professor at Deepak Parekh Institute and Professor of Chemistry at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai, India.

Professor Dey shared best practices on scholarly publishing and delivered his lecture on “Communicating Science in Popular Writing Format,” while Professor Pradeep talked at length about the ins and outs of peer review. Professor Pradeep’s scientific lecture on “Reactions Between Nanoparticles” captivated the audience.

The program saw participation from more than 120 early career researchers and faculty members from the institution. Attendees were able to interact with the event’s featured speakers, as well as ACS staff in attendance. They were able to share insights and discuss the positive impact that ACS Publications is making to the research output of NIT Calicut. When researchers publish with ACS, their work earns more citations, showing off the research done at NIT Calicut to the world.

ACS on Campus is honored to collaborate with NIT Calicut and are grateful for the support provided by Professor Jaydeep and the team from NIT Calicut to make this day a great success.

Nanotube “Rebar” Helps Graphene Toughen Up

Ultrathin and highly conductive, graphene shows promise for flexible electronics and energy-dense battery electrodes. But materials scientists fret that the material’s brittleness could hold it back from practical applications. Carbon nanotubes could come to the rescue, new research shows. Sensitive measurement techniques and simulations reveal that coating graphene with carbon nanotubes helps it resist fracture in much the same way that rebar makes concrete structures more resilient.

The individual carbon-carbon bonds in graphene are some of the strongest found in nature. “In a perfect world, it should be very strong,” says Jun Lou, a nanomechanics expert at Rice University. But zoom out, and the material is brittle, fracturing with ease at the sites of the most minor flaws in its structure. In 2014, Lou published a paper establishing that pure graphene has a fracture toughness of just 4 megapascals, making it more brittle than safety glass, which is designed to shatter upon impact. This will be a problem in applications like flexible electronics, he says. Tears in the material could short-circuit graphene devices or lead to expensive manufacturing problems. “When you get to the real, commercial realm, reliability becomes an issue,” Lou says.

Researchers pulled on a composite material made of graphene (light green) reinforced with carbon nanotubes (dark green lines) in a random pattern. The nanotubes hold the graphene together until the material finally gives. This video was made with the help of software simulations based on electron microscope images.

One way to combat this is to try to control graphene’s crystalline structure to eliminate defects, but this is difficult. Rice University nanochemist James M. Tour took a different approach, inspired by composite building materials, using another carbon nanomaterial that also has good electrical properties: carbon nanotubes. He developed a graphene-nanotube hybrid he called rebar graphene by coating a copper surface with carbon nanotubes, using chemical vapor deposition to grow graphene on top, and then peeling the nanotube-studded graphene off. Tour believed the material would be resilient just like rebar-containing concrete, and he teamed up with Lou to do the extensive mechanical testing needed to prove this hunch.

Lou’s group performed repeated fracture experiments under different types of electron microscopes, using a tiny mechanical device to pull on the rebar graphene at different angles relative to the nanotubes. Experimental methods alone can’t capture what happens when graphene fractures—it happens too fast. So the team collaborated with Brown University researchers who specialize in molecular simulations. By stitching together images from many experiments and simulating the events, the team was able to get a full picture of what happens when rebar graphene tears, down to the level of individual nanotubes.

“It’s taken us a couple years to understand what’s going on,” Lou says. “In pristine graphene, the crack is unstoppable, and goes in a straight line.” In rebar graphene, the fracture moves in a zig-zag, with nanotubes holding the graphene together like bridges, dragging the torn sides back together until the stress is too high and the nanotubes give. Rebar graphene has a fracture toughness of 10.7 MPa, more than twice that of pristine graphene. Though reliability in actual devices still needs to be shown, these basic materials properties are good news for those looking to make rugged electronics from carbon nanomaterials. Tour’s previous work showed that rebar graphene has a lower electrical resistance and better transparency than plain graphene.

Lou says other promising ultrathin, two-dimensional electronic materials, such as molybdenum disulfide, are also brittle and might be toughened using the same method. Ting Zhu, a mechanical engineer at Georgia Institute of Technology, is impressed by the techniques used in the study and agrees it will have wider implications. “This paves the way for the development of next-generation rebar graphene as well as other 2-D composite materials that are strong and tough, which can be used for flexible electronics and energy storage,” he says.

Celebrate 2019: The International Year of the Periodic Table With a Calendar Honoring the Table’s History

Next year marks the 150th anniversary of the most beloved icon in chemistry, Dmitri Mendeleev’s Periodic Table of Chemical Elements. To honor this milestone, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proclaimed 2019 as “The United Nations International Year of The Periodic Table of Chemical Elements” (IYPT 2019). The American Chemical Society (ACS), the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), and scientific societies around the world will all be celebrating with special events, contests, and more.

The elegance of the Periodic Table’s design, its predictive power, and clear style has inspired thousands of products. These include popular culture variations of the Periodic Table, clothes, shoes, jewelry, dinnerware, and more.

Discover the Most-Read Organic/Inorganic Chemistry Articles of August 2018

There are lots of different ways to look at the reach of an article. You can look at citations, Altmetric Attention Scores, awards, and more. One way to consider the influence of an article is just by looking at how many people chose to read it. To that end, we’ve compiled lists of the five most-read chemistry articles that appeared in each ACS Publications journal in August 2018, including research, reviews, perspectives, and editorial pieces. These lists were not chosen by the journal’s editors and should not be taken as a “best of” list, but as another perspective on where the chemistry community allocated their attention.

Get free monthly updates on the most-read research in your field.

There are lots of different ways to look at the reach of an article. You can look at citations, Altmetric Attention Scores, awards, and more. One way to consider the influence of an article is just by looking at how many people chose to read it. To that end, we’ve compiled lists of the five most-read chemistry articles that appeared in each ACS Publications journal in August 2018, including research, reviews, perspectives, and editorial pieces. These lists were not chosen by the journal’s editors and should not be taken as a “best of” list, but as another perspective on where the chemistry community allocated their attention.

Get free monthly updates on the most-read research in your field.
