The Duke of Cambridge in a graphene F1 car


Graphene is a disruptive technology; one that could open up new markets and even replace existing technologies or materials. It is when graphene is used both to improve an existing material and in a transformational capacity that its true potential can be realised.

Combining all of graphene's amazing properties could create an impact of the scale last seen with the Industrial Revolution.

The vast number of products, processes and industries for which graphene could create a significant impact all stems from its amazing properties.

No other material has the breadth of superlatives that graphene boasts, making it ideal for countless applications.

  • It is many times times stronger than steel, yet incredibly lightweight and flexible.
  • It is electrically and thermally conductive but also transparent.
  • It is the world's first 2D material and is one million times thinner than the diameter of a single human hair.

Application areas

Transport, medicine, electronics, energy, defence, desalination; the range of industries where graphene research is making an impact is substantial.

And this is only the start. These are only the first steps. The potential of graphene is limited only by our imagination.
