  • Now, a team including the UK-based research group that discovered graphene has created a new material called graphane by adding hydrogen atoms to their original discovery. all content

  • The resulting material called graphane has insulating properties. News Feed

  • The research was published in the International Glaciological Society's another study published this week says the Oregon researchers are wrong: the nanodiamonds are more like fool's diamonds, and are just aggregates of graphene, graphane and their oxides -- the stuff found in pencils.

  • The team studied both the electrical and structural properties of graphane and concluded that each carbon atom is bonded with one hydrogen atom. all content

  • As well as being an insulator that could prove useful for creating graphene-based electronic devices, graphane might also find use as a hydrogen-storage medium that could help hydrogen-powered vehicles travel further before refuelling. all content

  • However, making graphane had proven to be difficult. all content

  • By adding hydrogen to the graphene and creating graphane, it can properly insulate the transistors. News Rss Feed
