Rethinking the basic science of graphene synthesis

7 septiembre 2014

A new route to making graphene could make the 21st century’s wonder material easier to ramp up to industrial scale. Graphene — a tightly bound single layer of carbon atoms with super strength and the ability to conduct heat and electricity better than any other known material — has potential industrial uses that include flexible electronic displays, high-speed computing, stronger wind turbine blades, and more efficient solar cells, to name just a few under development.
