DALLAS, September 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ —
Graphene is a hot topic. It promises to offer the best possible material properties in almost all applications. Its extraordinary performance has led many to call it the ‘superlative’ or ‘wonder’ material. The reality however is different and it is important to diligently separate hype from reality using detailed understanding of the graphene technology and industry. ReportsnReports.com offers two research reports on the Graphene Market that analyze the techonologies, markets, players and applications of Graphene with 2018 & 2022 forecasts for the industry.
The latest piece of research to emerge from the University of Houston and Case Western Reserve University has shown that graphene may be used as a antimicrobial coating for surgical equipment and other surfaces. The news reinforces findings announced earlier this year by Prof Bingan Lu and strengthens the case for the use of graphene composites in applications where bacterial infection is thought problematic.
