    A team of Italian researchers from the European consortium Graphene Flagship has discovered that graphene nano-tools can trigger bone formation in a mouse experiment. They hope the discovery will someday have a clinical application.

  • Graphene reaches the market... secretly

    Sergio Ferrer | 28 May 2019 08:00

    It is a two-dimensional material that has promised almost magical applications. Almost ten years after its ‘parents’ won a Nobel Prize, its most mundane applications are coming to market. Although the products are not revolutionary, many companies that use graphene do so with a secrecy that stands out against the marketing of others.

  • Waterproof graphene electronic circuits

    Water molecules distort the electrical resistance of graphene, but now a team of European researchers has discovered that when this two-dimensional material is integrated with the metal of a circuit, contact resistance is not impaired by humidity. This finding will help to develop new sensors –the interface between circuits and the real world– with a significant cost reduction.

  • Graphene and cobalt for creating new electromagnetic devices

    Enrique Sacristán | 05 December 2018 09:00

    Researchers from IMDEA Nanociencia and other European centres have discovered that the combination of graphene with cobalt offers very relevant properties in the field of magnetism. This breakthrough sets the stage for the development of new logic devices that can store large data amounts quickly and with reduced energy consumption.

  • An ultra-thin 'Teflon' for reactivating graphene

    SINC | 17 September 2018 10:11

    The extraordinary mechanical and electronic properties of graphene endow this material with features suitable for a multitude of potential applications. They can be even more extended by covalent graphene functionalization but graphene presents a challenge: low reactivity. One of the solutions is to manufacture graphene derivatives from fluorographene, which, with new solvents and techniques fo...

  • Whatever happened to graphene? The answer is in San Sebastian

    Sergio Ferrer | 15 September 2018 08:00

    More than 600 experts from 43 countries have gathered in San Sebastian this week to exchange ideas and share their work on this substance. Their ultimate goal: to take this material out of the laboratory to make the promised revolution a reality. This is the Graphene Week, which this year has received the visit of the ‘father’ of graphene, Andre Geim.

  • How to introduce graphene into our bodies without causing rejection

    SINC | 16 May 2018 10:49

    The many applications of graphene nanomaterials also include those in the field of medicine, from cancer therapies to tissue engineering and gene transfer. The main barrier that tools manufactured with these materials will have to overcome is the reaction of the immune system. Now European researchers have analyzed how our defences act in the presence of graphene oxide, the oxidised form of gra...

  • “Magnetism in graphene can be controlled with hydrogen atoms”

    Enrique Sacristán | 30 November 2017 11:45

    Graphene has extraordinary mechanical and electronic properties, but no magnetic properties. This can be made up for with the help of the lightest element: hydrogen, which transfers its magnetic moment on coming into contact with graphene. This has been demonstrated by a team of European scientists coordinated by the physicist Iván Brihuega from the Autonomous University of Madrid.

  • Graphene set to go from the lab to the marketplace

    Enrique Sacristán | Athens | 30 September 2017 08:00

    In the future, the exceptional properties of graphene will make car seats and aircraft antenna protection enclosures lighter, which will reduce fuel consumption. These are just two examples of the uses of this revolutionary material exhibited during the last week of September in Athens, where companies and research centres presented their latest results for producing it at an industrial level.
