“2D Materials – Beyond Silicone and Graphene” – by Mara Staffilani

Michael J. Bojdys, head of the Functional Nanomaterials group at the Charles University in Prague, describes a class of [graphene-]analogous, two-dimensional sheets made from a mix of carbon and nitrogen that are here to complement the one property that the wonder material graphene has not: a useful electronic band gap.” – Dr Mara Staffilani

Triazine-based graphitc carbon nitride (TGCN) featured in “Stanene the next miracle material?” – by Michael Gross

“Ten years after the discovery of graphene, analogous two-dimensional sheets made from other elements, including tin, are emerging as competitors for the miracle material.” – Gross, M.

“gt-C3N4—The First Stable Binary Carbon(IV) Nitride” – by Prof. Dr. Edwin Kroke

Twenty-five years ago a diamondlike C3N4 phase was postulated. After many unsuccessful attempts the synthesis of an s-triazine-based modification was accomplished, which is reported to show interesting semiconducting and catalytic properties similar to that of graphene and related graphitic C/N/H phases.” – Prof. Dr. Edwin Kroke
