Summary
What if you discovered an infinitesimally thin material capable of conducting electricity, able to suspend millions of times its own weight, and yet porous enough to filter the murkiest water? And what if this incredible substance is created from the same element that fills the common pencil? That's graphene--a flat, two-dimensional, carbon-based molecule with a single sheet measuring only one atom thick. With a wide range of promising applications--from medical sensors to smart-phones and building material ten times stronger than steel--this revolutionary and highly adaptable substance is one of the most exciting developments in materials science in recent decades.--p.4 of cover
