The future of graphene is not about graphene itself.
It lies in the vast possibilities that graphene unlocks in other materials and applications, according to a story by the Australian Graphene Industrial Association.
In fact, many materials engineers think that, 20 years from now, graphene will have become so ubiquitous it will have ‘disappeared’, having evolved into one of the foundation materials of modern engineering, manufacturing and IT&T.
It’s this sheer speed of adoption that has graphene watchers transfixed.
Graphene’s twin attributes of low cost and ease of implementation distinguish graphene from many other “super materials” that, having experienced their moment in the sun, descend into the Gartner Trough of Disillusionment and never quite make it out.
And it’s these and other very salient properties that are exciting to both scientists and investors.
Graphene could be described as coming in two flavours; one can be termed physicist and the other chemist.
