Electrides join 2-D materials club
Thanks to a simple exfoliation process, an unusual class of ionic solids known as electrides has joined the growing ranks of two-dimensional materials (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2016, DOI: 10.1021/jacs.6b10114). The availability of the highly conductive material in nanosheet form may lead to applications in electronics and chemical synthesis.
Electrides are exotic materials that include layered ionic solids in which planes of atoms are separated . . .
