Graphene hair dyes

The journal Chem has reported today a study by a team of scientists led by Jiaxing Huang, from Northwestern University, about the preparation of a graphene oxide gel and its use as hair dye. This original use of graphene reflects…

2D materials fit for business?

7 years ago have passed since Andre Geim and Kostantin Novoselov were awarded the Nobel Price in Physics for the discovery of graphene, a two-dimensional material that has then become a celebrated wonder material. Graphene is the thinnest compound known…

Monolayer boron nitride for indoor formaldehyde removal

Formaldehyde (HCHO) is often found in high concentrations in indoor settings. It is mainly emitted from paints used for furniture and long-term exposure to it may cause serious problems to the respiratory system and even cause cancer. Several technologies for…

Toray proposes graphene for lithium batteries

Large industrial groups have an increasing interest in graphene, the material discovered few years ago that was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2010. Japan-based Toray developed a graphene conductive additive as an alternative to carbon black for coating…

Graphene getting closer and closer to large-scale commercialization

Large-scale commercialization of graphene, the material awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, is closer by the day. English manufacturer Applied Graphene Materials announced yesterday it has entered into a supply contract with Century Composites, which will produce fishing rods…

A new way for hydrogenation of graphene

A team of researchers at Uppsala University, in partnership with AstraZeneca Gothenburg research center, have presented a relatively simple, low-cost method for hydrogenation of graphene in the journal Nature Communications. In the study, graphene was treated with a water solution…

Promising findings for the use of graphene in bone implants

A team of Rice University researchers lead by Pulickel Ajayan used graphene flakes produced by SPS (Spark Plasma Sintering) to obtain new biocompatible materials for the production of artificial bones. The obtained graphene shows highly porosity (50%) and high compressive…
