Hydrogen is viewed as a promising alternative to fossil fuel, but the methods used to make it either generate too much carbon dioxide or are […]

Rice University chemists have processed waste plastic from end-of-life F-150 trucks into graphene for composite materials in new vehicles. The suggestion is that parts of an old car gets turned into graphene that could come back as a better part for new cars. Rice University chemists working with researchers at the Ford Motor Company are […]

Harvard scientists reported superconductivity progress that’s more robust and operates at higher temperatures. The scientists successfully stacked three sheets of graphene and then twisted each of them at a specific angle to produce a three-layered structure more capable, robust and with a higher operating temperature than many of the double-stacked graphene designs. In 2018, the […]

University of Arkansas physicists have successfully generated an electrical current from the atomic motion of graphene, discovering a new source of clean, limitless power. Paul Thibado, professor of physics and lead researcher in the discovery said, “An energy-harvesting circuit based on graphene could be incorporated into a chip to provide clean, limitless, low-voltage power for […]

Ohio State University researchers, in collaboration with scientists around the world, have made a discovery that could provide new insights into how superconductors might move energy more efficiently to power homes, industries and vehicles. Their work showed that graphene – a material composed of a single layer of carbon atoms – is more likely to […]
