Are discarded cigarette butts the next high performing hydrogen storage material?

Are discarded cigarette butts the next high performing hydrogen storage material?

Description
Discarded cigarette butts are a major waste disposal and environmental pollution hazard. But chemists at the University of Nottingham have discovered that cigarette butt-derived carbons have ultra-high surface area and unprecedented hydrogen storage capacity.

Reactions in tiny containers – towards the world's smallest coaxial cable

Reactions in tiny containers – towards the world's smallest coaxial cable

Description
A team in the School of Chemistry at the University of Nottingham have developed a new approach for the preparation of a coaxial cable around 50,000 times narrower than the width of a human hair. This miniscule wire – comprising a carbon nanotube located inside a boron nitride nanotube – can be produced on a preparative scale and may represent an important step towards the miniaturisation of electronic devices.
