Graphene Consortium

Graphene

WHAT IS GRAPHENE ?

  • Single layer of Carbon atoms
  • Hexagonal lattice structure
  • Single Layer of Graphite
  • Isolated in 2004 by two researchers at the University of Manchester using sellotape

 

THE PROPERTY OF GRAPHINE

  • High electrical conductivity
  • 200 times stronger than steel
  • Thin and lightweight
  • High thermal conductivity
  • Very high transparency
  • Flexible
  • Anti corrosion
  • Antiseptic
  • Fire retardant
  • Lubricant

 

GRAPHENE’S ‘WONDER MATERIAL’ REPUTATION STEMS FROM ITS SUPERLATIVE PROPERTIES

  • It is a million times thinner than a piece of paper
  • Yet stronger than diamond
  • A two-dimensional layer of carbon that conducts heat and electricity better than copper
