Graphene: The Future’s Supermaterial?

•, Oliver Cawthorne

Graphene, a single layer of the common graphite, is a largely overlooked allotrope of carbon as compared to the more popular ‘eternal’ diamonds (even though the chemists out there will know that diamond is, contrary to the song Diamonds Are Forever by Sierra Leone, not stable at normal temperatures and pressures and will decay into graphite eventually, thus are not forever). It is being discussed as of current times the practical use for graphene – what it can achieve, how we can manipulate it for the benefit of technology and, arguably more importantly, the advance of science.
