A group of scientists from Finland has conducted computer simulations that predict the existence of an atomically thin, free-standing 2D liquid phase. Atomically thin two-dimensional liquid. Image credit: Pekka Koskinen. 2D materials were considered impossible until the discovery of graphene around ten years ago. However, they have been observed only in the solid phase, because the thermal atomic motion required for molten materials easily breaks...
