Quotes

"Some important classes of applications, such as printed electronics, conductive coatings and composite fillers, will require industrial-scale production of defect-free graphene in a processable form."
It's a "wonder material", according to the American Physical Society, "a million times thinner than paper, stronger than diamond, more conductive than copper."
"It is a significant step forward towards cheap and scalable mass production" said Andrea Ferrari, an expert on graphene at the University of Cambridge
They discovered that a blender had enough force "to separate the layers of graphene that make up graphite flakes without damaging their two-dimensional structure" BBC News reported
