John Menasce Goodbye Silicon Hello Carbon

How about expanding this thinking along the route of carbon capture and the reduction of global CO2 emissions?

Neil Jacobsohn One step closer to the super-chip

We told you it was coming....see the attached MindBullet. Graphene may yet change our world.

Doug Vining Storage for the new energy

Who would have though that two common materials like carbon and water could be used to make super-efficient batteries for energy storage?

That's the beauty of nanotech - providing new uses for common molecules - as long as they are arranged the right way. In this example, graphene could be used for ultra-fast electrical energy storage.

Wolfgang Grulke Graphene emerges from the shadows

Don't say we didn't tell you! Our 2010 MindBullet hinted at things to come - an update in this Guardian piece from 13 November 2011.

Doug Vining Go graphene, go

Making vodka stronger might not be considered a real miracle, but graphene's unique properties continue to astound researchers.

I can imagine an application like removing water from biofuels - essentially creating a means of refining ethanol and similar fuels with low energy requirements.

Neil Jacobsohn A billion euros for graphene research

We wrote about the magical possibilities of graphene back in 2010 - and now Europe is pumping a billion euros into research on what can be achieved with this wonder material.

Anton Musgrave New materials signal Moore's Law extension

Step change innovation will never end, despite predictions in the 1930's that everything that could be invented, had been. Each step change heralds a new era of opportunity and advantage for those that re ready for it and spells commoditisation for those unable to capitalise on the future. Graphene will impact on many aspects of manufacturing, health care and others. What do you know about it? What are you doing about it?

Doug Vining Carbon computers

It might not be time to say goodbye to silicon just yet, but the first computer made entirely from carbon is here!
