Graphene-Innovations in Materials Science
The Science SquadDownloadable Video - 2012
Ireland is currently 8th in the world for Materials Science research. In this Science Squad episode, we meet Jonathan Coleman who is developing innovative methods to produce graphene, a graphite derivative, that could be used to strengthen everyday plastics. His work could offer huge benefits to the aerospace, automotive and manufacturing industries, cutting CO2 emissions and ultimately reducing the overall cost to consumers throughout the world.
