Sensor CDT student finds a way to design a “ship” inside the nano-sized bottle

Sensor CDT student finds a way to design a “ship” inside the nano-sized bottle

28 March 2019

Tiesheng Wang from the 2014 cohort and his collaborators have figured out a generic way to confine materials inside a space with a typical dimension of 1-to-2 nm, a bit like building a ship inside a bottle. They have established a rational approach, called Pourbaix Enabled Guest Synthesis (PEGS), to identify the boundary...
