What is graphene?
Graphene – a single layer of carbon atoms – may be the most amazing and versatile substance available to mankind.
The history of graphene
If you have ever drawn with a pencil, you’ve probably made graphene.
The European roadmap for graphene science and technology
This roadmap was developed within the framework of the Graphene Flagship and outlines the main targets and research areas as best understood at the start of this ambitious project.
