Graphene 2014: The path to a ‘killer application’
Published: Friday, 09 May 2014
Much of the R&D conducted in the decade since graphene’s discovery has focused on cost and commercial viability, looking at its potential use in electronics or membranes. Discussions at Graphene 2014 in Toulouse, France, uncovered some more obscure uses which could propel the nano-material from the laboratory into the marketplace.
once considered the preserve of science fiction and theoretical
physics, is now predicted to reach commercial realisation
in as little as 12-24 months.
Several participants at Graphene 2014, which took place in
Toulouse, France, this week, told IM that a
wide variety of end-market applications could soon feature
