Global Graphene Manufacturers and Suppliers
Graphene is the name for a honeycomb sheet of carbon atoms. It is the strongest known material, yet it is also stretchy. It can conduct electricity 100x better than silicon and heat 10x better than copper – yet it is only a single atom thick (there are about 3 million layers of graphene in 1 mm of graphite).
Graphene is undoubtedly emerging as one of the most promising nanomaterial because of its unique combination of superb properties, which opens a way for its exploitation in a wide spectrum of applications ranging from electronics to optics, sensors, and biodevices.
For instance, graphene-based nanomaterials have many promising applications in energy-related areas. Just some recent examples: Graphene improves both energy capacity and charge rate in rechargeable batteries; activated graphene makes superior supercapacitors for energy storage; graphene electrodes may lead to a promising approach for making solar cells that are inexpensive, lightweight and flexible; and multifunctional graphene mats are promising substrates for catalytic systems (read more: graphene nanotechnology in energy).
