Graphene Wheel Takes Downhill Prize

For anyone doubting the durability of graphene and carbon nanotube technology perhaps the collaboration between Zyvex Technologies and ENVE Composites will convince you to think again.

The two companies have been working jointly on producing a bicycle wheel rim specifically designed to withstand the rigours of downhill mountain biking. The resulting wheel, which employs Zyvex’s branded CNT and graphene composite material to achieve its incredible strength, gains its durability from the company’s proprietary Kentera technology which cleverly enables the creation of chemical bonding on the side of the carbon nanotubes.

Q&A with Dr. Gordon Chiu, Vice President and Co-Founder, Grafoid Inc.

Gordon Chiu (head and shoulders)

Invest in Graphene featured a newsletter with Dr. Chiu that is now available to all readers of the website.

 

Thank you for agreeing to engage in a Q&A with investingraphene.com Dr. Chiu, it’s a real coup for us to have someone at the very heart of graphene science and industry feature on the site. With a reputation for being an “execution-driven businessman” and holding a slew of qualifications in chemistry and medicine I imagine you will be able to clarify much about the science of graphene whilst giving some real insight into the financial opportunity that graphene presents.

Q1. Graphene is often described as a “wonder material” with the potential to change the world. Ballistic conductance, zero band gap and incredible strength are all frequently cited as being the defining features of graphene but what properties of graphene do you consider to be the most scientifically interesting and what products will be developed as a result of them?
