Taking Materials into the Third DimensionExternal link

To create more efficient catalysts and separation devices, scientists would like to start with porous materials with controlled atomic-scale structures as random defects can hamper performance. At Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, a team created a one-pot method that produces complex, highly oriented three-dimensional pore structures. Read MoreExternal linkage
