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....

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...
