Nano mesh conducts better
the right chemicals in a vapor and you get a flexible semiconducting
nanoscale mesh that could be used to extract hydrogen from water.
A technique for growing titanium disilicide crystal yields
the net-shaped structure.
The nanoscale size and mesh shape improve the material's ability
to conduct electricity. The material has been used to extract hydrogen
from water and store the hydrogen in recent laboratory research.
