A drugstore solution for synthesizing stable semiconducting polymers D’Arcy Lab develops an elegant, inexpensive approach that uses aerosolized water vapor as a template for creating uniform plastic nanoparticles. Current methods for producing conducting plastics typically deposit the material onto a flat surface, resulting in differences in shape between the top and bottom of the particles. […]
