Colloids Group Funds Nanocomposite Project

Colloids Group is funding a joint collaborative Ph.D. research project with the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC) at The University of Manchester. “The centre specialises in the rapid development and scale up of graphene and other 2D materials...

Graphene Battery Futures

Developing a graphene battery looks to be one of the ideal uses of this high conductivity material. However commercialisation has been slower than expected. “Graphene was the world’s first two-dimensional material. Stronger than steel, more conductive than...

Borophene and Graphene into 2-D Heterostructures

Research which integrates borophene and graphene, is an important step toward creating integrated circuits from these nano-materials for electronics use. Nanomaterials could provide the basis of many emerging technologies, including extremely tiny, flexible, and...

Graphene Monoxide Battery Startup

Graphene monoxide battery startup receives a second grant to improve storage capacity of lithium ion batteries using graphene. “Two physicists at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee have been awarded a grant of over a $1 million from the U.S. Department of...

Developing Graphene for Supercapacitors

A recent licensing agreement will help with developing graphene for supercapacitors. If graphene can be mass produced for super capacitors then making high density storage of energy for a range of industrial uses will become much easier. “First Graphene Ltd has...

Disordered three-dimensional graphenes

The topology of disordered three-dimensional graphenes: Rosalind Franklin’s pre-DNA problem untangled. “These results open up possibilities for understanding and engineering carbon materials for applications in supercapacitors, carbon fibres and...
