Welcome to the December issue of Materials World, which this month focuses on new materials. Drs Robin Rogers and Gabriela Gurau, both from Queens University in Belfast, UK, explore the development of ionic liquids, while Jerome Ville of Fibroline, Ecully, France, discusses a new dry powder impregnation technique to treat materials. Related articles focus on the thermal properties of diamond-based materials, and the use of auxetic materials. In other feature stories, Michael Forrest takes a look at minerals exploration, and talks to John Menzies, CEO of Euromax Resources Ltd, Canada, about mining in Eastern Europe.
   In our news section, the Materials World team investigates the development of electroluminescent garments to improve personal safety and developments in medical laser manufacturing.
