Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNT) are close structural analogs of carbon nanotubes (CNT), which are high aspect ratio nanotubular material, where carbon atoms are alternately substituted by nitrogen and boron atoms.
Professor Rivnay (Northwestern University, USA) discusses using organic mixed conductors as an alternative to efficiently bridge the ionic world of biology with contemporary microelectronics.
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have received much attention since their discovery in 1991 by Sumio lijima1 due to their excellent mechanical, electrical, and optical properties.
A nanocomposite is typically defined as a mixture between a host material (e.g., polymer matrix) and nanofillers with at least one dimension of less than 100 nm.
