Graphene, a one-atom-thick flat sheet of carbon, has received plenty of attention especially after groundbreaking experiments on its properties were rewarded with the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. This single layer of graphene is simultaneously the world's thinnest, strongest and stiffest material, as well as being an excellent conductor of both heat and electricity.
The vast amount of interest in graphene and its properties is reflected by approximately 3,000 research papers and more than 400 patent applications [1]. Also the amounts of funding that the graphene research is obtaining from both governments and industry is impressive. However, up till now no products utilizing graphene are available on the market.
This presentation analyses the future perspectives of the market and product development and to this extend the need for the mass production of this material. As specific production methods, Chemical vapour deposition (CVD) and electrochemical exfoliation are introduced.
Supporting the trend among the material manufacturers, who concentrate their efforts on not only development of the material, its production methods but simultaneously the applications, the EU funded project ElectroGraph (GA no. 266391) is presented.
