Abstract Device applications of ferroelectrics have not only utilized the switchable polarization but also adopted myriads of emerging physical properties. In particular, ferroelectrics in ultra-thin limit have recently attracted considerable scientific and technological interest owing to the increasing demand for miniaturization of electronic devices. In the last two decades, ultra-thin ferroelectrics have rapidly developed with the advances in the theoretical calculations, synthesis, and chara...

Abstract Natural biomaterials have benefited the human civilisation for millennia. However, in recent years, designing of natural materials for a wide range of applications have become a focus of attention, spearheaded by sustainability. With advances in materials science, new ways of manufacturing, processing, and functionalising biomaterials for structural specificity has become feasible. Our review is focused on bacterial cellulose (BC), an exceptionally versatile natural biomaterial. BC is a...

Abstract The prevalence of bacterial infections and resistance to existing antibiotics make new effective antibacterial strategies urgently needed. Photocatalytic antibacterial, an effective strategy relying on exogenous excitation, has drawn increasing attention over the past decades, owing to its controllable, safe, and non-invasive characteristics. Many photoresponsive agents have been developed. With exceptional features of abundance, facile synthesis, suitable band structure, high stability...

Abstract The polyurethanes (PU) are a very versatile family of materials mainly obtained by combinations of polyols and polyisocyanates. Based on their annual worldwide production of around 20 million tons and a global market of $50 billion (2016), PUs rank 6th among all polymers. Through their value chain, PUs involve different players: (i) the chemists producing most of PUs raw materials, (ii) the PUs producers from the raw materials, (iii) the compounders/assemblers who formulate PUs into the...

Abstract Emulating the unique combination of structural, compositional, and functional gradation in natural materials is exceptionally challenging. Many natural structures have proved too complex or expensive to imitate using traditional processing techniques despite recent manufacturing advances. Recent innovations within the field of additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D Printing (3DP) have shown the ability to create structures that have variations in material composition, structure, and performa...

Abstract Two-dimensional (2D) materials such as graphene and molybdenum disulfide et al. offer significant new prospects for electronics, optics, and biosensing applications due to their unique physical and chemical properties. The controlled manipulation of such materials to create three-dimensional (3D) architectures is an intriguing approach to favorably tuning their properties and creating new types of 3D devices with small form factors. However, 2D materials exhibit extremely low bending st...

Abstract The spin-orbit coupling field, an atomic magnetic field inside a Kramers’ system, or discrete symmetries can create a topological torus in the Brillouin Zone and provide protected edge or surface states, which can contain relativistic fermions, namely, Dirac and Weyl Fermions. The topology-protected helical edge or surface states and the bulk electronic energy band define different quantum or topological phases of matters, offering an excellent prospect for some unique device applicatio...

Abstract Artificial intelligence (AI) based approaches are beginning to impact several domains of human life, science and technology. Polymer informatics is one such domain where AI and machine learning (ML) tools are being used in the efficient development, design and discovery of polymers. Surrogate models are trained on available polymer data for instant property prediction, allowing screening of promising polymer candidates with specific target property requirements. Questions regarding synt...

Abstract The engineering applications of thermoelectric (TE) devices require TE materials possessing high TE performance and robust mechanical properties. Research on thermal and electrical transport properties of TE materials has made significant progress during the last two decades, developing TE materials on the threshold of commercial applications. However, research on mechanical strength and toughness has lagged behind, restricting application of TE materials. Mechanical failure in these ma...

Abstract Fire safety has become a major concern due to the ubiquitous use of polymers. The development of flame retardant polymer materials has consequently experienced a huge growth in market size. New strategies and legislation have also been proposed to save lives and property. The science and economics of flame retardancy, fire regulations, and new technologies are under permanent evolution. This review paper focuses on revisiting and classifying recent developments in the knowledge and tech...
