Is China still leading the graphene race?

Much attention has been given to the number of patent applications filed around the world for graphene technology as an indicator of progress being made in the field by different countries. It has been reported that China holds the largest number of patents on graphene. Now the latest research from Fullerex which reveals the number of active graphene producers in each country, also puts China on top.

Nanotechnology: Doing more with less (Part 2)

Rising global consumption is widely acknowledged by major government and academic institutions to pose a severe threat to the security of the world's natural resources and environment. Is human civilization on a collision course with collapse, driven by overconsumption, resource depletion and irreversible damage to the ecosystem or are production technologies changing and improving so rapidly that resource productivity and sustainability will increase sufficiently to avoid such a disaster?

Filling a critical void in the value-chain for Graphene commercialisation (The Graphene Council Newsletter July 2014)

Producers and end-users alike require several key components in the value chain to be met before successful and sustainable trade in a material can occur. This is certainly also the case with nanomaterials and therefore Graphene in its myriad forms.
