Revolution - CUBEN Vs. IYC 2011
Tie in poster with The International Year of Chemistry 2011
Graphene is an allotrope of carbon, whose structure is one-atom-thick planar sheets of sp2-bonded carbon atoms that are densely packed in a honeycomb crystal lattice.
The term graphene was coined as a combination of graphite and the suffix -ene by Hanns-Peter Boehm, who described single-layer carbon foils in 1962. Graphene has been touted as the "miracle material" of the 21st Century.
Said to be the strongest material ever measured, an improvement upon and a replacement for silicon and the most conductive material known to man.
