Just squeeze in — when spaces are tight, nature loosens its laws

It turns out that when they’re in a hurry and space is limited, ions, like people, will find a way to cram in — even if that means defying nature’s norms. Researchers have now shown that the charged particles will actually forgo their ‘opposites attract’ behavior, called Coulombic ordering, when confined in the tiny pores of a nanomaterial.
