WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT GRAPHENE?

What is so special about Graphene? If you are wondering what graphene is, then either you have been disconnected from the world for the past decade, or you have been blissfully ignorant about it. It is also known as the ‘wonder material’. The factor that makes it such an unusual substance is the immensely diverse properties of graphene. What is Graphene? Can you imagine a single material being not only excessively lightweight but also being the most durable material known to...

HOW TO MAKE SWITCHABLE PDLC FILM

A switchable PDLC film is an excellent and ideal choice to maintain comfortable indoor environment and lighting, without the use of expensive and complicated air conditioning and electrical lighting system. It is also useful to maintain privacy in the selected area. Also known as ‘smart switchable film, the switchable PDLC film is designed to control the light and heat enter the room. It is a useful alternative for heavy laminated glass or Venetian blinds. What do you need to make Switchable...

HOW TO INSTALL SWITCHABLE PDLC FILM?

Conventionally, a commercial space, hospitals, bathrooms, office, home, and even vehicles require efficient light within. To let sunlight in, the transparent windows usually covered with Venetian blinds or some other form of a curtain. However, the incoming sunlight also brings with it the significant amount of heat which requires using more air conditioning.However, when you choose to install switchable PDLC film, you can forego all the expense and complexity of installing and maintaining adequate indoor lighting and climate control...

WHAT’S THE REAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GRAPHENE AND GRAPHITE?

With advancing research and development we have numerous ultramodern materials which have a high potential for application not only in current industries but can be adapted easily to function in numerous other industries too.Graphene and graphite are two such materials which have found widespread application in various industrial sectors. Although the former is derived from the latter, there are certain distinct differences in their features.What is Graphite?Graphite is a naturally occurring mineral which consists of...

GRAPHENE OXIDE: THE CURRENT SMART MATERIAL OF THE FUTURE

Introduction to Graphene Oxide Graphene is costly and comparatively challenging to manufacture. Extraordinary efforts have been attempted to find efficient yet low-cost ways to produce and use graphene derivatives or related materials. Here is where Graphene oxide (GO) comes into the picture being a single-atomic-layered material, made by the strong oxidation of graphite, which is inexpensive and available in plenty. Graphene oxide is an oxidized structure of graphene, made up of “oxygen-containing” groups. It thought to be much easier to...
