No need to be so gloomy about graphene

Abstract:
I don't wish to claim that the UK is the best in the world at turning science into innovative products, but Aditya Chakrabortty's article (4 December) about the country's efforts in exploiting graphene - the ultra-thin "wonder material" made from carbon - was unnecessarily gloomy.

First, in describing the work by Nobel laureates Andre Geim and Sir Kostya Novoselov at Manchester University, where they discovered graphene in 2004, Chakrabortty fails to mention that the construction of the new, state-of-the-art 61m National Graphene Institute at the university has been specifically designed to encourage innovation.
