Covetic Materials

Covetics are a “new” class of materials with high carbon content in excess of their solute solubility – potentially enhancing the mechanical, and corrosion properties of ubiquitous metals such as copper, silver, and aluminum. The MMCL is studying the microstructure and mechanical properties of these materials currently being synthesized by our collaborators at the Universiy of Maryland, College Park.
