What is Graphene? We take a look at this amazing material.

Derived from Graphite, Graphene is the world’s first 2D material.

Over 200 times stronger than steel and a million times thinner than a strand of hair; it’s just a single atom deep.

It’s super flexible, incredibly light and very conductive.

It can be used in different applications as a single layer or as a stack of layers.

It can also be mixed with other materials and liquids.

In short, it’s the material of the future and opportunities for its use are potentially enormous.

The UK is a leading figure in Graphene

Its unique structure means there are possibilities for an enormous impact on water purification processes.

Graphene’s electrical and thermal properties could be huge for the electronics market and it could have multiple uses across healthcare, sport and defence.

And the great thing is, the UK is a leading figure in the development of Graphene.
