LAS VEGAS, NV, July 25, 2013 – (eTeligis via Accesswire) — National Graphite Corp. (OTCQB: NGRC) is pleased to announce that, SWCA of Elko, Nevada, one of the leading environmental consulting firms to the mining industry in the U.S. has completed its environmental impact study on the proposed drilling program on the Chedic Voltaire graphite property.
A collaboration of biologists, engineers, and material scientists at Brown University has found that jagged edges of graphene can easily pierce cell membranes, allowing graphene to enter the cell and disrupt normal function. Understanding the mechanical forces of nanotoxicity should help engineers design safer materials at the nanoscale.
