Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Making Rusty Polymers for Energy Storage

Newswise imageIt’s called a nanoflower, but if you could brush your cheek against its microscopic petals, you would find them cool, hard, and…rusty. Common rust forms the inner skeleton of these lovely and intricate nanostructures, while their outer layer is a kind of plastic. Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have developed a straightforward way to make this type of conducting polymer with high surface area that is likely to be useful for energy transfer and storage applications.
