One of my good friends had an interest in graphene a while back and so you could say, I did the leg work on this one some time ago. I did do a bunch of reading and editing again to get it all lined up though.



GRAPHENE, a form of carbon that comes in sheets a single atom thick, has gained a reputation as a wonder material. —

Graphene is sort of like the high-tech version of cling wrap. —

Graphene is the basic structural element of some carbon allotropes including graphite, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes. —

Graphene is a fascinating material with very unique properties, processes, and usages. —

Graphene is the basic structural element of several carbon allotropes including graphite, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes. —

Ordinary graphene consists of carbon sheets that are single or few atomic layers thick. —

Graphene is composed of a carbon sheet. —

Graphene is made up of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice. —

Graphene is a two-dimensional form of carbon in which the atoms are bonded into a honeycomb arrangement. —

Graphene is a lattice of carbon atoms so thin it’s considered to be two-dimensional. —

Graphene is a layer of carbon atoms that form a lattice that resembles chicken wire. —



Conductivity & Applications

Graphene is a highly conductive material, lightweight, transparent and strong. —

Graphene can be used as an electrode when liquid electrolytes are added. —

The electrical conductivity of graphene enhanced composites has already been established. —

On top of that, graphene is an excellent conductor of heat and electricity and has interesting light absorption abilities. —

Graphene is a 2D material made of carbon atoms, arranged in a honeycomb lattice. —

Graphene has the same structure of carbon atoms linked in hexagonal shapes to form carbon nanotubes, but graphene is flat rather than cylindrical. —

In graphene each carbon atom has three electrons that are bound to electrons in neighboring atoms, forming chemical bonds. —

Graphene is an ideal candidate for transparent electrodes in solar cells with high transparency, good conductivity and potentially low cost. —

Although the application of graphene in solar cells is only theoretical, the potential could be staggering. —

Graphene has a lot of possible applications in the fields of electricity, conductivity, energy generation, batteries, sensors and more. —
