Graphene becomes easier to mass-produce with acid, solvents

graphene-pom-poms

Most of you have probably already heard about graphene, the material of the future capable of offering a massive battery life to any kind of electronic device, even electric vehicles. One of the main issues with graphene is that its mass production is costly and time-consuming, but we might have come across a fix for that in the form of ...

Battery-free electric cars may become real in 5 years

Battery-free electric cars may become real in 5 years

Electric cars have become all the rage lately, thanks to Elon Musk and Tesla, among others, but can you imagine battery-free electric cars? Even if you can’t, you should know that we should be driving them in about 5 years, if all goes well. According to recent research, graphene-based supercapacitors might be the solution to the battery issues we might ...

No doubt graphene was indeed a miracle material ever since a pair of chemists from Manchester University first manufactured it. They isolated thick layers of carbon by peeling off the sheets from the powdered graphite using sellotape. Earlyer this year Samsung achieved a breakthrough, developing a technique for synthesizing graphene on a large scale. The material of unusual strength and flexibility ...

Samsung achieves breakthrough with Graphene

samsung-graphene-wearable

Samsung researchers claim to have made a breakthrough, developing a technique for synthesizing graphene on a large scale. Graphene is an ultra-thin material of unusual strength and flexibility, it’s more conductive to electrical charge and heat than silicon. At the same time, it manages to be stronger than steel while still remaining flexible, therefore, graphene is a very attractive material because ...
