Properties and Applications of Functionalized Graphene Oxide

Professor Aran (Claremont University, USA) thoroughly discusses the engineering of graphene based materials through careful functionalization of graphene oxide, a solution processable form of graphene.

Recent Trends in Self-Healing Soft Electronic Materials and Devices

Dr. Tan and researcher introduce recent trends in Self-healing Soft Electronic Materials and Devices. The emergence of smart, functional SHPs will be highly beneficial to the advancement of the next-generation self-healing soft electronic devices. Autonomously self-healing devices could help to minimize the need for repair or replacement of electronics and machines, potentially reducing the cost of materials and reducing electronic waste.
