What is the graphene? Graphene is a substance composed of pure carbon atoms with regularly arranged in a hexagonal pattern similar to graphite, but a sheet of one atom thick. It is very light, a sheet of 1 square meter weighs just 0.77 milligrams.
PROPERTIES AND APPLICATIONS It can be used to do many things, for example: To manufacture a new powerful mobile He can be used everyday life Antibacterial applications
History of Graphene It is a new material. Really is known and has been described for more than half a century.The scientists gave little attention during decades because they thought it was unstable.The word graphene was officially adopted in 1994. Actually, the graphite structure can be considered a large number of battery plates.
