London - Researchers at the Singapore-based Nanyang Technological University are looking at the possibility that carbon black - and other amorphous carbon materials -- can be used as an analog material for graphene.
Graphene is a new supermaterial made of a sheet of carbon atoms just one atom deep. It is very strong and offers remarkable properties to materials engineers.
In a paper titled, â€œThermally Reduced Graphenes Exhibiting Close Relationship to Amorphous Carbonâ€, published in the June 2012 issue of Nanoscale, the researchers led by Martin Pumera sggest that there are significant similarities.
