Network World, April 1: The question is becoming what can’t graphene do? The material, which is a form of carbon (what’s known as an allotrope of carbon), was recently described by the National Physical Laboratory as having many extraordinary properties including superior mechanical stiffness, strength and elasticity, electrical and thermal conductivity while being optically active, chemically inert and impermeable to gases.

This slide show offers a primer on what graphene is, and why it’s considered a disruptive technology in sectors like optoelectronics, flexible electronics, printed electronics, bioelectric devices, energy storage and ultrafiltration.
