What is graphene?

Find out all about graphene and its applications.


Graphene is the world's thinnest, strongest and most conductive material. This makes graphene the ‘holy grail’ of technology in terms of new technologies such as wearables, driverless cars, and so on.

For example, wearable devices could gain a new boost by using graphene due to its highly-conductive and ultra-flexible features.

A group of University of Manchester academics has said that cheap, flexible, wireless graphene communication devices such as mobile phones and healthcare monitors can be directly printed into clothing and even skin.
