Goodfellow, a global supplier of high-purity metals and materials for research and industry, has entered into a non-exclusive agreement with Haydale Graphene Industries to market and distribute Haydale’s functionalized graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs).
New research by IDTechEx in the report “Graphene Markets, Technologies and Opportunities 2014-2024” shows that graphene markets will grow from around $20 million in 2014 to more than $390 million in 2024, at the material level.
Carbon is one of the earliest known elements. It was used by the Egyptians and Sumerians in the form of charcoal around 3750 B.C. for the reduction of copper, zinc, and tin ores in the manufacture of bronze.
Researchers at Cornell develop world's thinnest sheet of glass.
December 2, 2013
At just a molecule thick, it’s a new record: The world’s thinnest sheet of glass, a serendipitous discovery by scientists at Cornell and Germany’s University of Ulm, is recorded for posterity in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Columbia Engineering researchers recently demonstrated that graphene, even if stitched together from many small crystalline grains, is almost as strong as graphene in its perfect crystalline form. This work resolves a contradiction between theoretical simulations, which predicted that grain boundaries can be strong, and earlier experiments, which indicated that they were much weaker than the perfect lattice.
Graphene is emerging as one of the most promising materials ever discovered, one that has the potential to play a vital role in the development of advanced technologies in key industry segments, including computing, electronics, energy, defense, health care, telecommunications, and transportation.
