A new class of porous materials with an orderly crystal-like arrangement of ultra-small spherical spaces has been discovered by chemists at Penn State. A paper describing the "nanobubblepack" discovery will be published in the February 12 issue of the journal Science. The researchers report that they can produce the material in a range of pore sizes never before achieved, opening the door to a variety of potential uses in industry and research.
The above story is based on materials provided by Penn State. Note: Materials may be edited for content and length.
