Graphene could help reduce the energy cost of producing heavy water and decontamination in nuclear power plants by over one hundred times compared with current technologies, University of Manchester research indicates.
The uses of graphene and 2D materials have many promising commercial applications and it is possible we could see graphene having an impact on transport, aerospace and sporting equipment in the future.
Graphene's multi-functionality opens up completely new opportunities when using everyday applications. Graphene's ultra-light and super-strong qualities means it has many possibilities, it could be used to design structures, components and can be used in ways never thought possible.
Graphene is already being used in tennis rackets and the constant developments in graphene research means that it's going to have limitless applications.
