Nanoscale Graphene Platelets Taking Its Place as an Emerging Class of Nanomaterials
Volume 8, Issue 1

Ron Beech

Graphene is no longer just a topic for physicists and chemists to discuss at conferences. The material is making the transition from research journals to commercial applications. The speed of this transition is driven by its unique properties and the ability of manufactures to provide materials in large volumes. This article discusses the history of graphene and its applications, and compares graphene to other nanomaterials. Graphene’s competitors include carbon nanotubes and established materials such as carbon black, carbon fibers, nano clays, and glass fibers. The article also discusses a new class of nanomaterial now commonly referred to as "nano graphene platelets."
