Graphene based Electrodes for Lighter Batteries

Graphene based electrodes are enabling the development of batteries and supercapacitors with the same sort of mechanical properties as structural body panels. This will (one day) lead to lighter electric vehicles and aircraft. “The rise in popularity of electric...

Twisted physics: Magic angle graphene

Twisted physics is what happens when two layers graphene are tilted at the magic angle. “Last year, scientists demonstrated that twisted bilayer graphene—a material made of two atom-thin sheets of carbon with a slight twist—can exhibit alternating...

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...

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...

Graphene for Oil Clean Up

Log 9 Materials, a Bangalore-based nanotechnology start-up is using graphene for industrial clean up, including oil leaks and oil spills. They have developed oil sorbent pads that can absorb up to 86 times their own weight. They are using graphene for oil clean up....
