A Sturdy 3D Material Behaves Similar to Graphene

Recently researchers have found a new material with the same electronic properties like two-dimensional graphene, but it is in a stable 3D form. Being peeled from graphite, this extremely thin material graphene is surprisingly conductive. Therefore, scientists have succeeded in creating electricity by simply drawing drop of seawater across it. […]
