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.
Graphene has many amazing properties which can be used for biomedical applications, making graphene an extremely attractive material.
Graphene can potentially be used to change the behaviour of cells, used to aid healing of wounds, and aid in the delivery of drugs. Biomedical applications are some of the most exciting and transformative concepts that graphene could deliver.
