Welcome to Graphene Info - The Latest News on Graphene Technology Trends

Graphene is a flat monolayer of carbon atoms tightly packed into a two-dimensional (2D) honeycomb lattice, and is a basic building block for graphitic materials of all other dimensionalities. It can be wrapped up into 0D fullerenes, rolled into 1D nanotubes or stacked into 3D graphite.

Elon Musk May Use 'Wonder Material' Graphene To Push Tesla Performance To ...
Business Insider
Graphene, for those who don't know, is a carbon-based “super material” that's roughly 200 times stronger than steel but nearly transparent when laid out in sheets. First isolated in 2003, graphene is as an excellent conductor of heat and energy, and ...

Graphene reinvents the future
Phys.Org
Graphene is "hidden" inside graphite, an ore that has not been particularly sought after in the past. But a few years ago, it revealed a secret. At the molecular level it is a unique two-dimensional molecule: an electrically conductive lattice-like ...
