Graphene sieve turns seawater into drinking water

Graphene-oxide membranes have attracted considerable attention as promising candidates for new filtration technologies. Now the much sought-after development of making membranes capable of sieving common salts has been achieved.

Two-dimensional materials 'as revolutionary as graphene'

Extremely thin stacks of two-dimensional materials, which could deliver applications fine-tuned to the demands of industry, are set to revolutionise the world in the same way that graphene will.

Snowflakes become square with a little help from graphene

The breakthrough findings, reported in the journal Nature, allow better understanding of the counterintuitive behaviour of water at the molecular scale and are important for development of more efficient technologies including ...

Graphene displays clear prospects for flexible electronics

Published in the scientific journal Nature Materials, University of Manchester and University of Sheffield researchers show that new 2D 'designer materials' can be produced to create flexible, see-through and more efficient ...

Protons fuel graphene prospects

Graphene, impermeable to all gases and liquids, can easily allow protons to pass through it, University of Manchester researchers have found.
