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 [...]

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LITHIUM ION BATTERY AND GRAPHENE BATTERY

With increasing advancing penetration of consumer electronics batteries are becoming omnipotent. From your car to your TV remote and even your ever-present smartphones, you need an efficient and better source of the stored portable power source. From the last decade or so, Lithium Ion batteries have been considered to be adequately advanced and efficient. These provide a light, compact and powerful source of energy to many of today’s electronics.However, with the discovery of graphene and its excellent conductive [...]

TESLA CAN USE GRAPHENE BATTERY IN FUTURE VEHICLES

Electric-powered vehicles are being called the future of transport all around the world. As our age quite literally runs on electricity, it is past the mark where we should have had more advanced and refined battery-powered electric cars and other vehicles.Now Tesla, the electric carmakers from the US, has announced its intentions to include graphene batteries in its future vehicles. This might be the solution to reduce the weight and size of the batteries in such cars, which have [...]
