Eco Graphene


What is graphene?

Graphene is often referred to as the “material of the future” because it has a variety of remarkable properties and applications.

Graphene is called a nanotube similar to carbon nanotubes with the difference of it being a leaf. Simply put,  graphenes are rolled out nano tubes with similar extraordinary properties but distinct features and use cases as they are transparrent.

Properties/applications of graphene

Excellent conductivity

Graphene is an excellent electrical conductor. It can conduct electricity with extremely low resistance, making it ideal for applications in electronics, electrical engineering and power transmission.

High thermal conductivity

Graphene has exceptionally high thermal conductivity, making it valuable for heat dissipation in high-performance electronics and other thermal applications.

Mechanical strength

Despite its extremely thin structure, graphene is extraordinarily strong and flexible at the same time. It can withstand mechanical stresses and is therefore relevant for applications in materials science, composite manufacturing and even medicine.


Graphene is transparent and can still absorb light very efficiently. This makes it a promising candidate for applications in optoelectronic devices such as transparent displays, sensors and photovoltaic cells.

Chemical resistance

Graphene is chemically inert and can therefore be used in aggressive environments without corrosion or degradation.

Large surface

Due to its 2D structure, graphene offers a large surface area relative to its volume. This enables a wide range of applications in the field of catalysis, where materials react on the surface.

Versatility in electronics

Graphene could replace or complement traditional silicon chips in electronics. It enables miniaturization of components and has the potential to enable faster and more efficient electronic devices.


Graphene-based materials could improve the energy efficiency and capacity of batteries and supercapacitors, leading to longer battery life and faster charging times.

Water and air purification

Graphene can serve as an adsorbent for pollutants in water and air, leading to environmentally friendly purification technologies.


Graphene has the potential to be used in medicine for the development of biosensors, medical imaging technologies, drug delivery systems, and tissue regeneration.

Graphene production

Current production methods of graphene are very complex and therefore cost-intensive. The material is either produced by chemical vapor disposition of graphite or is artificially grown.
The big challenge is to achieve consistent purity and quality, which is difficult to do with natural graphite.

As with CNTs, St. Andrews has succeeded in generating graphene by catalytic cracking, which can be considered revolutionary in this field. Challenges in quality, purity, and effectiveness have also been successfully overcome, which now makes broad application possible as well.

Graphene is one of the thinnest and strongest materials in the world, yet it is flexible.

The materials of the future

Nearly every industry worldwide can and will benefit from CNTs & graphene.
