Secret of Iron Superconductors discovered

Due to magnetism iron should – theoretically – be a poor superconductor. Nevertheless certain iron based materials possess fine superconducting properties. Why? Because the five unbound electrons found in iron – as a result of individual modes of operation, it …

High quality graphene made from soybean oil in a single step

Until now, the high cost of graphene production has been the major roadblock in its commercialiZation. Previously, graphene was grown in a highly-controlled environment with explosive compressed gases, requiring long hours of operation at high temperatures and extensive vacuum processing. …
