Graphdiyne as a functional lithium-ion storage material

Graphdiyne is as flat and thin as graphene, which is the one-atomic-layer-thin version of graphite, but it has a higher porosity and adjustable electronic properties. Researchers describe its simple bottom-up synthesis from tailor-made precu...
