Morgan Advanced Materials has announced a new joint development agreement with The University of Manchester, aimed at scaling up a new process for manufacturing graphene. Bringing together some of the University’s leading graphene researchers and Morgan’s 150 years of carbon processing expertise, the partnership will explore the full potential of graphene, with a particular interest in understanding and optimisingthe relationship between the manufacturing process and materials science. The partnership has been established to improve the prospects of bringing this material to commercial reality. Morgan initially began work with The University of Manchester in early 2010 on a number of Government-funded materials and related programmes, and the joint graphene development agreement represents the next stage in this relationship.
