Sustainable coating to increase magnesium alloys’ corrosion resistance

A multidisciplinary team of the CSIC has developed a sustainable and biocompatible coating for magnesium alloys that improves its resistance to corrosion, but also allows to have a progressive and controlled corrosion. The coating adheres perfectly to the substrate and has a high density, which multiplies its applications in this type of metal alloys.

Low cost and easy delamination process to isolate high quality graphene films

Researchers from the CSIC and the laboratory CIBER- BBN have developed a simple procedure to isolate highly crystalline graphene. The method enables the graphene to be transferred from the silicon carbide substrate, where it has been formed, to any other one, such as a dielectric for electronic device applications.

A cheaper graphene synthesis method

Scientists at the CSIC have developed a new method for the direct growth of graphene on dielectric substrates, avoiding the step of transferring the graphene from the copper catalyst substrates to the substrates of practical interest, as silicon or glass, avoiding therefore the economical cost. It is a scalable and reproducible method to use graphene in multiple applications.
