Industrial scale production of graphene in sight [Registered]

New research from the University of Pennsylvania demonstrates a more consistent and cost-effective method for making graphene, the atomic-scale material that has promising applications in a variety of fields, and was the subject of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. As explained in their recently published paper in the journal Chemistry of Materials (2011, 23 (6): 1441-1447) , the Penn research team was able to create high-quality graphene that is just a single atom thick over 95% of its area, using readily available materials and manufacturing processes that can be scaled up to industrial levels. “I’m aware of reports of…
