Graphene is a unique material that could revolutionize technological progress.

It is a flat structure composed of carbon atoms connected in hexagons.

It has a monatomic thickness which means it is a two-dimensional material.

Graphene interesting facts

1. Graphene is the lightest and strongest material on Earth. It’s hard to imagine, but it is 100 times stronger than steel, having 6 times less weight.

2. Graphene, like diamond, is made of 100% carbon.

3. Until the early 1980s, it was assumed that two-dimensional materials such as graphene could not exist.

4. Graphene is shaped like a honeycomb.

5. Andrey Gejm and Konstantin Nowosiołow from the University of Manchester received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010 for their research on graphene.

6. Graphene is a very good conductor of heat and electricity (it has much better parameters than silver).

7. It is extremely resistant to stretching (130 GPA). For comparison, kevlar has a strength of 0.4 Gpa. To illustrate this, a net 0.1 mm thick could hold an elephant.

8. A membrane made of oxidized graphene traps gases while allowing water to pass through it. This property will allow you to desalinate sea water in a cheap and extremely efficient way.

9. Graphene can be stretched 20% of its length and bent an infinite number of times in every possible direction without the risk of cracking.

10. Graphene has antibacterial properties.
