Graphene's Future Prospects

wallpapers News 2020-12-24
Graphene is a two-dimensional carbon nanomaterial with a hexagonal honeycomb lattice composed of carbon atoms and sp² hybrid orbitals.
Graphene has excellent optical, electrical, and mechanical properties, and has important application prospects in materials science, micro-nano processing, energy, biomedicine, and drug delivery. It is considered a revolutionary material in the future.
China also has unique advantages in graphene research. From a production perspective, graphite, which is a raw material for graphene production, has abundant energy storage and low prices in my country. It is precisely seeing the application prospects of graphene that many countries have established graphene-related technology research and development centers to try to commercialize graphene, and then obtain potential application patents in industry, technology, and electronics-related fields. For example, the European Commission regards graphene as the "Future Emerging Flagship Technology Project" and sets up a special research and development plan, and allocates 1 billion euros in the next 10 years. The British government has also invested in the establishment of the National Graphene Institute (NGI) in an effort to make this material available from the laboratory to the production line and market in the next few decades.

Graphene is expected to become a new generation device in many application fields. In order to explore the broader application fields of graphene, it is necessary to continue to seek more excellent graphene preparation processes for better applications. Although graphene has been synthesized and confirmed to exist only a short ten years ago, it has become a hot spot for scholars this year. Its excellent optical, electrical, mechanical, and thermal properties have prompted researchers to continue to study it. With the continuous development of graphene preparation methods, graphene will be more widely used in various fields in the near future.
