Scientists have developed a new device that is far thinner than paper, can flex and bend, and store enough energy to provide critical back-up power for portable and flexible electronics.
Oxygen and greenery is fine but what about plants that can sense pollution and even detect chemical explosives?
Here comes a novel approach to harvest solar energy that could improve efficiency by storing the energy for later use.
A researcher has made a material by combining spider`s silk and carbon nanotubes that can be used as carbon nanotubes.
Scientists in the United States said Tuesday they had coated spider silk with carbon nanotubes, creating a fibre that is not only super-strong but also conducts electricity.
The yarn - about the width of a human hair - is made of super-strong carbon nanotubes coated with small molecules of plastic.
Graphene and carbon nanotubes could improve the electronics used in computers and mobile phones.
Scientists have developed a carbon nanotube sponge that can soak up oil in water with unparalleled efficiency.
US scientists have innovated a nanosponge that can sweep the seas clean of oil spills and minimise ecological damage to marine life.
A researcher is tapping windows in high-rise buildings to produce energy cheaply and more efficiently with transparent solar cells, a study reveals.
Carbon nanotubes which are used in everything from sports equipment to medical applications can affect the lining of the lungs, say researchers.
