The lower part of this photo is an image of the biphenylene network obtained with high-resolution microscopy. The upper part shows how the atoms of this new 2D carbon material are linked in a lattice of squares, hexagons, and octagons.

Roughly 200 times stronger than steel, highly conductive to electricity and heat, antibacterial, and only one atom thick, graphene is a wonder material that has captured the imagination of scientists. Now, researchers in Germany and Finland have created a new two-dimensional carbon material that offers new properties and possibilities.

In recent years, graphene has been used to make materials l...
