Sun and Ruoff go straight in at number one this week, with their new method for casting graphene structures.
Advanced Materials Top 40

A new paper is straight in at number 1 this week – a collaboration between the Sun and Ruoff  groups, reporting their new method for fabricating graphene structures.

Lihong Bao and Xiaodong Li move up two places to number 2 with their energy-storage t-shirts, work which is now free to access and has been picked up by major news sites across the world, while the new number 3 – up from 13th – reviews the work that has been done to alter graphene’s band structure, making it more amenable to electronics applications. 

A Brief Guide to Designing Effective Figures for the Scientific Paper is up two places, to number 12 in this week’s chart – remember, if you’d like to attend our live event based on this paper, registration is still open.
