Graphite magnets get ready for applications

Physicists in Uruguay and Brazil have succeeded in synthesising large quantities of magnetic graphite for the first time. The material made by Álvaro Mombrú and colleagues at the Universidad de la República in Montevideo and the Universidad Federal de São Carlos has the advantage of remaining magnetic at room temperature. Magnetic carbon could be used to make inexpensive, metal-free magnets for applications in medicine and biology, nanotechnology and telecommunications.
