Graphene Sieves Deuterium from Hydrogen

Materials composed of a single layer of atoms, such as graphene, can separate hydrogen and deuterium more effectively than almost any other process . That is the conclusion of scientists in the UK, who believe the new sieves could slash production costs for deuterium for nuclear power generation and research.   Deuterium – a heavier isotope of hydrogen containing a...

Graphene Given Recycling Boost

Engineers at the Graphene Flagship have demonstrated a recyclable technique that yields cost-effective, high-quality graphene. The technique, which has been designed to enhance the traditional method of synthesising graphene via the chemical vapour deposition (CVD) of methane gas onto a copper substrate, permits researchers to peel graphene flakes from a CVD substrate with minimal...

Graphene holds promise for next-generation fuel-efficient cars

Graphene could lead to greener more fuel-efficient cars in the future by converting heat into electricity, according to researchers at the University of Manchester. Harvesting heat produced by a car’s engine which would otherwise be wasted and using it to recharge the car’s batteries or powering the air-conditioning system could be a significant feature in the next generation of hybrid...

Graphene Ink to Print Energy Storage Devices

Batteries, supercapacitors and other energy storage devices could one day be printed on desktops from conductive graphene ink, thanks to researchers in the UK. Consumers are constantly demanding ever greater storage capacity from the batteries in smart phones, tablets and other devices. And if solar, wind, and wave power are ever to contribute a substantial proportion of our...

New method produces graphene crystals 'in minutes instead of hours'

A method for creating large graphene crystals in minutes instead of hours has been demonstrated by Oxford University researchers. The development is expected to pave the way for cost-effective high quality graphene production on a commercial scale. This would aid the development of new technologies in fields such as electronics and metrology, owing to graphene’s combination of...
