    I'm talking about Graphene Oxide. This stuff has been around since the 1800's but in the last 10 years it has exploded in popularity. There is a high cost involved with making it because you either need high temperatures, dangerous oxidizers, large amounts of electricity or special catalysts. There exists a "bottom up" method starting from sugars, the Tang Lau method.
    I am researching an even cheaper bottom up synthesis starting from industrial waste.

    It’s lighter than steel and it’s flexible. That alone makes Graphene a prize that the world is fighting for.

    Graphene does it all.

    The European Union put up a $1 billion investment in 2013 and some of the sharpest minds in the world of material science are solely focused on making it commercially viable. But producing a stable version on a commercial scale is still a conundrum that has tormented scientists since Professors Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov scooped a Nobel Prize for isolating it in 2004.

    It has still made its way on to the market and Graphene 3D offers more than 100 products to more than 11,000 customers. They include NASA, Apple, Samsung, Harvard University and Ford Motor Co.
