Advanced Materials Top 40

The University of Kiel’s aerographite maintains its grip on the Advanced Materials Top 40, taking top place for the second week in a row, and making it 6 weeks since it entered the charts. Number 2 this week, up from number 13, is work on polymer-network-based self-healing surfaces.

Elsewhere, work on using metal oxide nanoparticles in solar cells is a new entry at number 3, and George Whitesides’ perennial favourite on writing a scientific paper is up 18 places to number 12.
