Last Month's Most Accessed Feature: Boron enters flatland: Borophene sheets on the way

Laboratory experiments and supercomputer simulations have suggested to chemists that a cluster of 36 boron atoms can form a flat disc with a hexagonal hole in the middle. The shape fits theoretical predictions for a potential new nanomaterial dubbed "borophene" which would not be dissimilar to the much-vaunted all-carbon material graphene.

Astrophysicists are collaborating on an ultraviolet telescope, a cosmic ray telescope, for the International Space Station that will be installed before the end of the decade and will look back at Earth in order observe the collisions of cosmic rays with our atmosphere.

A new ratiometric optical pH probe has been developed by combining pH-sensitive and pH-insensitive fluorescent dyes into nanoparticles for in vivo optical imaging of human inflammatory responses.
