The 10 strangest facts about graphene
When first discovered, graphene was odd. Now odd is too small a word for a material seemingly set on winning all the records a material can win.
In the first part of our series, we looked at what graphene is and how it was discovered. In part two, we explored the different techniques we can use to make graphene.
But what is it that makes this material so remarkable? Here are 10 of the strangest facts about graphene.
