It’s super strong, super slim and almost transparent, but why all the fuss about a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon?
It’s likely that graphene – said to be hundreds of times stronger than steel and able to conduct electricity at super high-speed – will be used in many gadgets, vehicles and constructions.
“There seems to be at least six major clusters of potential applications of graphene,” says Philip Shapira, professor of innovation management and policy at University of Manchester Business School. “Screens and displays; memory chips and electronic processors; biomedical devices and sensors; batteries; coatings, inks and fillers; and materials.”
Applied Graphene Materials plc (LON:AGM) produces and sells graphene products primarily in the United Kingdom. It offers graphene nanoplatelets; and graphene powder in a range of polymer matrices, including thermoset and thermoplastic, as well as adhesives, elastomers, oils, and aqueous and non-aqueous solutions.
