Enhanced ordering reduces electric susceptibility of liquids confined to graphene slit pores

We show that the confinement of solvents to thin 2D layers (e.g. between carbon nanotube or graphene films) can greatly enhance the ordering of the molecules, leading to dramatic changes in their electrical properties than can affect the resistance of the carbon nanomaterials.

Ancient proteins resolve the evolutionary history of Darwin’s South American ungulates

In collaboration with colleagues from University of York, and elsewhere, we have helped to develop techniques for analysing sequences of collagen in ancient bone which shed light on important phylogenetic relationships that were previously inaccessible using traditional DNA dating techniques.
