New research demonstrates the real-world potential of providing clean drinking water for millions of people who struggle to access adequate clean water sources.
Graphene paint is similar to other types of traditional paint. Paint is just one of a number of protective coatings which utilise graphene's impermeability to harmful substances in order to protect the material underneath. Coating the hull of a ship for example, could make it impervious to rust.
Looking ahead there is the possibility of adding conductive graphene paint to rooftops as a way of conducting energy and power the home.
