Hydrogen and lithium, along with silicon, are arguably two of the most important elements in advanced energy material technology. As a result, understanding the character of these elements in a variety of environments over a broad range of conditions is crucial for addressing many energy challenges. Many low-Z materials are now known to...

Carbon nanothreads, the one-dimensional carbon nanomaterial synthesized slow compression of benzene to 20 GPa followed by slow decompression to atmospheric pressure, contain almost exclusively fully saturated sp3 carbons, with a C/H ratio of about 1:1. Despite this key information, the exact structure of the carbon nanothread remains...
