It's nanotubular: New material could be used for energy storage and conversion

Aug. 13, 2014- 
Lawrence Livermore researchers have made a material that is 10 times stronger and stiffer than traditional aerogels of the same density.This ultralow-density, ultrahigh surface area bulk material with an interconnected nanotubular makeup could be used in catalysis, energy storage and conversion, thermal insulation, shock energy absorption and high energy density physics.Ultralow-density...
