New research opening for atomically thin metal nanostructures

Graphene is stable because the non-metallic element carbon prefers covalent, directional bonds that effectively cause structural planarity. Metallic bonds are less directional, whereby metals often coalesce into compact clusters. However, recent experiments suggest that, by using pores in otherĀ …
