Mochalin Image Appears on Advanced Functional Materials

Published on Friday April 1, 2011

Dr. Vadym Mochalin, research assistant professor in materials science and engineering, had his molecular model-based artwork "Variety of carbon nanostructures found in carbide-derived carbons" published on the cover of Advanced Functional Materials (Volume 21, Issue 5, March 8, 2011).

Carbide-derived carbon (CDC) can be obtained by selective removal of metal or metalloid atoms from carbides such as, for example, SiC.  The cover image visualizes the variety of carbon nanostructures, such as SiC amorphous carbon, carbon nanotubes, onion-like carbon, and graphene and is based on a recent feature article from the nanomaterials group: V. Presser, M. Heon, Y. Gogotsi, "Carbide-Derived Carbons - From Porous Networks to Nanotubes and Graphene," Advanced Functional Materials, 21 (5) (2011), p. 810-833.  Advanced Functional Materials is one of the leading material science journals with an impact factor of 7.
