Both Graphene and Graphyne are 2-D allotropes of carbon that hold exciting promise in a variety of fields, but subtle differences in their structure make a significant impact in how they function. Learn more about the key differences between Graphene and Graphyne on our blog:
Graphene Nanoplatelets (GNP) are short stacks of platelet-shaped graphene sheets. The stack size and shape are what sets this product apart from graphite as it provides barrier properties and the graphene component makes it an excellent conductor. When exfoliated Graphene Nanoplatelets are added to polymers, they add electrical and thermal conductivity, reduce gas permeability, and improve mechanical properties, such as tensile strength and surface hardness.
Measurements of the intrinsic strength of Graphene consistently indicate it’s the strongest material ever discovered. Its simple structure paired with the enormous strength of the individual bonds within, results in very few structural defects across its surface.
Graphene’s strength in combination with its other electrical and mechanical properties open the door for many exciting applications. ACS Material has a range of high-quality Graphene products available for researchers around …

Due to the unique physical properties of hydrophobic zeolite adsorbents, solvent control systems using hydrophobic zeolite may exhibit separation capacity equal to or better than systems using activated carbon without requiring much of the support equipment. Though activated carbon remains the adsorbent of choice for many applications, hydrophobic zeolite represents an efficient alternative for many niche applications.
Here is the Properties of ZSM-5 adsorbent we are supplying:
Vinyl acetate is an important downstream product of acetic acid. However, the trace of iodine (about 5× 10-8 wt ) in acetic acid must be removed for the preparation of vinyl acetate.
Our company has developed a new adsorbent which can efficiently remove the trace iodine in acetic acid, acetic acid. The acetic acid After removal of iodine in iodine content (mass fraction) down to (1 ~ 5) × 10-9 can be meet the requirements for raw materials of vinyl acetate.

Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)—Open to the New World of "Porous Material"
Jul-01-2017 | ACS MATERIAL LLC
Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), built from the coordination of metal ions and organic ligands, possess defined and tunable structures at a molecular level. Owing to their unique properties like high surface areas, tunable pore sizes and multiple functionalities, MOFs have been widely studied and utilized in areas such as gas storage/separation, catalysis, magnetic material, and luminescence.1

Si/C Composite Anodes - The New Energy Vehicle Revolution
Aug-23-2017 | ACS MATERIAL LLC
A lithium-ion battery is one of the most popular energy storage systems in consumer electronic and electric vehicle applications.1 Graphite has been commonly used as an anode material for lithium-ion batteries due to its low and flat working voltage, good cyclability in compatible electrolyte and so on. Its theoretical capacity is limited to 370 mAh/g and volumetric capacity of 830 Ah/L and in order to increase the specific energy of lithium-ion batteries, alternative anode materials with …
Upconverting Nanoparticles (UCNPs) are luminescent nanomaterials ranging from 1 to 100 nm in size. UCNPs absorb multiple photons of near-infrared (NIR) light and convert them into higher-energy light regions, ranging between ultraviolet (UV) and visible frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum. The many unique properties (large anti-Stokes shifts, steady and long-lived luminescence, high resistance to photobleaching and no photoblinking) have attracted interest from the biophotonics field …
Covalent organic frameworks (COFs) are a class of porous polymer in which organic building blocks are precisely integrated into extended structures with periodic skeletons and ordered pores1. COFs are a new type of crystalline porous solids with well-defined two-dimensional (2D) or three-dimensional (3D) molecular structures. This places them in contrast to other types of porous material, such as zeolites, mesoporous silica, organosilica, metal organic frameworks (MOFs), carbons, and metal …
Graphene aerogel (GA) is considered to be the lightest solid material and consists of 99.98% volume of air; it is so light that it can be balanced on even the smallest of plants. They are commonly low in density and thermal conductivity but make excellent insulators as they are almost completely comprised of gases. GAs are also very elastic but can go back to its complete, original form after being compressed. Due to its light weight, graphene has been proposed as a substitute for the …
Graphene is a single layer, two-dimensional crystal allotrope consisting of pure carbon atoms that is only one atom thick, revealing a hexagonal shape resembling a honeycomb. The first method to obtain a single-crystal graphene (SCG) was found by mechanically exfoliating a graphite crystal with adhesive tape and it has been the most efficient way of producing the cleanest, atomically thin nanosheets of layered materials.1 Repeated peeling is necessary but it is not easy to determine the number …
Zinc oxide (ZnO) is a semiconductor with a wide band gap (3.37 eV) and a high-exciton binding energy (60 meV).1 Based on its unique properties, researchers have studied its potential application for optoelectronic devices, field emitters, solar cells, sensors and transparent electrodes.2 ZnO is a versatile functional material that has a diverse group of growth morphologies, such as nano-combs, nano-rings, nano-helixes or nano-springs, nano-belts, nanowires and nanocages.3 Of these various …
Our Trivial Transfer Hexagonal Boron Nitride (TTh-BN) is now available. It's the easiest way to transfer monolayer h-BN onto any substrate. We've done the hard work for you, so you can experiment easily with your own substrates. Read more about h-BN on our h-BN blog.
Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) nanomaterials have been used primarily as photocatalysts over past few decades, however, its wide band gap largely limited TiO2 activity to the UV region of the solar spectrum. The discovery of ‘‘black’’ titanium dioxide nanoparticles with visible infrared absorption opened up all new possibilities in this sector.
Zeolites, also called molecular sieves, are crystalline microporous materials formed primarily by SiO4 and AlO4 corner-sharing tetrahedral building units that form three-dimensional (3D) frameworks with well-defined channels and cavities of molecular dimensions. The void space within the crystal allows zeolites to discriminate molecules based on their size or geometric shape. Read more on our Introduction to Zeolites blog.
GlowDots are nanoparticles conjugated with specific dyes to produce white-emitting particles with tunable excitation wavelengths. These are a chemical novelty because their particle size, size distribution, stability, surface chemistry and emission properties are under full chemical control and their size and absorption/emission properties can be independently tuned. Read more on ourGlowDots blog.
FluoDots are single protein nanoparticles labeled with particular fluorescent dyes for imaging and other applications. FluoDots are water-soluble, non-toxic, biocompatible, biodegradable and can be potentially used in LED coatings as biophosphors, in cell imaging, solar cells, cancer drug delivery and other biological applications.
