Toward Optimized Charge Transport in Multilayer Reduced...

In the context of graphene-based composite applications, a complete understanding of charge conduction in multilayer reduced graphene oxides (rGO) is highly desirable. However, these rGO compounds are characterized by multiple and different sources of disorder depending on the chemical method...

Whispering electrons in graphene

Whispering gallery modes (WGMs) are quite common in acoustics and optics. They denote the guided waves circulating along a concave surface, the seminal example being the whispering galleries of St. Paul’s cathedral: someone whispering on one side of the gallery can be heard all along the...

The first example of an iron(III) photosensitizer for...

Accessing Photoredox Transformations with an Iron(III) Photosensitizer and Green Light The scarcity of 2nd and 3rd row transition metals such as ruthenium, iridium, rhodium or osmium, coupled with a global desire for sustainable chemistry has led to the resurgence of research centered on...
