Successful Fabrication of 2D PANI with Improved Properties UNIST research team engineers a new synthetic protocol for 2D PANI

The formation of 2D polyaniline (PANI) has attracted considerable interest due to its expected electronic and optoelectronic properties. Although PANI was discovered over 150 years ago, obtaining an atomically well-defined 2D PANI framework has been a longstanding challenge, until now. An international team of researchers, affiliated with UNIST has recently announced that they have successfully

New Properties of Supercooled Water Discovered Water that stays liquid far below its normal freezing point

Water is an unusual liquid with many odd properties. On the Celsius scale, pure water typically freezes at 0 degrees (32 degrees Fahrenheit) and boils at 100 degrees (212 degrees Fahrenheit). However, liquid water can still remain liquid far below its normal freezing point, a new study shows. A team of researchers, led by Prof. Chae Un Kim (School
