Combing aluminum and ceramic resulted in non-cuttable material more effective than locks and safes created by the strongest metals. Designed after structures in nature that resist 'attack mechanisms', Proteus is a promising material that can be manufactured easily.
The results of the study may also be useful to the field of synthetic chemistry, as amide bond formation is essential for many commercially critical synthetic materials, bioactive compounds, and pharmaceuticals
Scientists from the University of Southampton and the University of Liverpool have developed a new method which has the potential to revolutionize the way we search for, design and produce new materials. Researchers explained that new Molecular Treasure Maps would accelerate the discovery of new materials.
