Graphene is a nano-material, which has gained a remarkable amount of interest as a potential game changer for various different applications i.e. flexible transparent displays to energy storage. It is an infinitesimally thin material capable of conducting electricity, able to suspend millions of times its own weight, and yet porous enough to filter the murkiest water.
The extraordinary material, graphene, is not a work of science fiction, its true and it’s here to stay. Graphene is elegant. It is created from a single element, carbon formed by just one bond. At the atomic level, the exclusively carbon graphene resembles a hexagonal “chicken wire” fence or a honey comb structure, with each carbon atom making up the point of hexagon. The hexagonal distribution makes graphene’ earth-shattering properties possible.
