ChemMatters Video Episode 10 - ChemMatters - Graphene: The Next Wonder Material?

 Reactions  show

Summary: A TV screen as thin and flexible as paper. A cook's pot that flashes a warning if it detects E. coli. Possible treatments for damaged spinal cords. It's not science fiction -- these are all possible applications of a material known as graphene. This so-called "wonder material" is 100 times stronger than steel but thinner than any known solid. And since graphene also conducts electricity as well as copper, it could lead to flexible cell phone touchscreens and transparent, inexpensive solar cells and other devices closer to reality.
