Graphene foam detects explosives.

The latest piece of research conducted by  Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute demonstrates the potentially life saving advances that investing in graphene may bring to the security and law enforcement sector. Reports that graphene foam outperforms the best, commercially available, gas sensors in the detection of dangerous and explosive chemicals add further support to the notion that its use in sensors will be one of the market areas in which it comes to dominate. The discovery paves the way for a whole range of improvements in the equipment used by bomb squads, law enforcement officials, defense organizations, and in various industrial settings.
