2-D Polymer Crystals Confirmed At Last
Two teams have combined organic monomer crystals to form large two-dimensional polymer single crystals and have determined their structures for the first time. Scientists see the work as a landmark development in research on synthetic 2-D polymer crystals, which might one day be used in separations and nonlinear optics, applications that could complement those of graphene.
A naturally derived 2-D network of carbon atoms, graphene has attracted considerable attention as a potential molecular electronics material. . . .
