Bullet proof Nanofibers

Kevlar is currently the material of choice to make bullet proof vests but it may get replace by new nanofibers which can absorb more energy than kevlar and can stretch 7 times of it's original length. The inspiration for the material comes from bone collagen spiral structure and it is composed of spinning polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and polyvinvylidene fluoride trifluoroethylene (PVDF-TrFE).

"When stretched, these polymer-based yarns create an electrical charge which acts to attracts the polymer back in on itself — an attraction found to be 10 times stronger than a hydrogen bond. (Hydrogen bonds are considered some of the strongest inter-molecular forces we know of.) The result is a material that can absorbs terrific amount of energy before it fails. "

Graphene - Amazing despite being "Defective"

Since it's discovery Graphene has been considered "wonder material" with potential to change technology like never before due to its pristine 2D structure. Now scientists have discovered that defective graphene can acts as highly efficient membrane for proton transfer in fuel cells.
"by knocking out at least four carbon atoms from the normally pristine structure, it performed vastly better. A large number of protons (and nothing else) slipped through imperfections in the atom-thick material in just a few seconds, efficiently generating electricity."
