Two recent findings in the world of graphene illustrate how graphene continues to be a subject worth following. Subjects in their infancy give rise to all kinds of interesting and unexpected discoveries, and in the case of graphene these discoveries occur with astonishing frequency. However, the two latest findings, one from the very birthplace of graphene science, Manchester University, and one from Tianjin University in China, show in different ways how the miracle material just gets better and better. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
This month’s newsletter contained the best article I have found on graphene production and global patents to date. Kindly offered for publication by Dr. Y. R. Mahajan the full version including tables and graphs can now be read here.
The article is well worth a read as it expertly describes the development and direction of global patents in the graphene industry. It provides an excellent springboard for deeper research into specific graphene companies and generally provides the kind of overview that could prove invaluable to potential investors.
The subject of graphene patents seems to be something of a hot topic at present, with recent articles in the Financial Times and New Scientist. Whilst concern over the inability of European countries to capitalize on their research has also been noted at Cabume, the article by Dr. Mahajan takes a less eurocentric view.
For those that may have stumbled upon the abridged version of the article at nanowerk I hope the full version present here will help to fill in some of the gaps.
I discovered this graphene infographic from VisualCapitalist today and thought it would help to get new visitors to the site up to speed on the subject. Infographics are great for getting across a lot of information succinctly and clearly, and this one does the job with style. All due respect to Lomiko Metals for funding the project.
The graphene infographic is from www.visualcapitalist.com and is made possible as a result of a financial contribution from Lomiko Metals. It is presented to you compliments of www.munKNEE.com (Your Key to Making Money!). This paragraph must be included in any re-posting to avoid copyright infringement.
Vorbeck Materials, in partnership with Pacific Northwest National Labs (PNNL) and Princeton University, was recognized today by R&D Magazine for developing one of the 100 most significant scientific and technological products or advances of the year. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
