Graphene Can Also Be Viewed as a 3D material, New Study Claims

Understanding the properties and dimensions of graphene is important for understanding novel ways in which the extremely thin, potentially world-changing material can be used. Now, a new study from researchers at Queen Mary University of London claims that Graphene is a 3D, as well as a 2D, material. Graphene has the highest known thermal and electrical conductivity of any material and is tougher than steel while still being light, flexible, and transparent. No wonder it is often called a 'wonder material.'The material has a wide range of potentially world-changing uses. These include being used as a filter for seawater, a barrier against mosquito nets, and a comfortable solution to electrodes in prosthetic devices.
