#Borophene Might Be Joining #Graphene in the 2-D Material Club

The world of two-dimensional (2-D) materials has just gotten a little more crowded. If graphene, boron nitride, molybendum disulfide and silicene weren’t quite enough , we now may have something to join the mix in the 2-D universe that will go by the name “borophene.” In experiments and simulations based at Brown University, in Providence, R.I., researchers took a big step toward a long theorized material made up of single-atom sheets of boron. The researchers haven’t actually produced borophene, but they did make a needed precursor structure that proves that the material is possible. In research that was published in the journal Nature Communications (“Planar hexagonal B36 as a potential basis for extended single-atom layer boron sheets ”) a cluster of 36 boron atoms were formed into a structure that resembles theoretical predictions for borphene: a symmetrical, one-atom ...
