ISI Hot Paper and Highly Cited Paper (Top 0.1%)

Congratulations to Babak Anasori and his co-authors on having their papers listed as both “Hot Paper” and “Highly Cited Paper” on ISI. This paper is on discovery and properties of 2D ordered double-transition metal carbides, which was published in ACSNano and was selected both as the cover and Editors’ Choice article by ACS.

Highly Cited Paper

Our paper titled, “Kinetics of aluminum extraction from Ti3AlC2 in hydrofluoric acid” published in 2013 in Materials Chemistry and Physics has once again been listed as one of the five most cited articles in this journal. Congratulations to all of our authors!

Seminar at Rutgers

Today, Prof. Gogotsi will be presenting a seminar  titled “Expanding the World of Two-Dimensional Materials” at Rutgers University, Institute of Advanced Materials, Devices and Nanotechnology.

New Nanodiamond Book Chapter

Those of you working on nanodiamond or nanoscomposites of any kind will be interested in the attached book chapter written by DNI alumni Ioannis Neitzel and Vadym Mochalin:
