Carbon Nanotubes Might Be the Secret Boost Solar Energy Has Been Looking For

Solar panels are an incredible innovation in energy tech, but they’re way less efficient than they could be, because they have a problem: heat. Specifically, waste heat, or energy that’s lost while converting the sun’s energy into electricity. But a new technology—made possible by carbon nanotubes—may be just the thing that brings solar panels into…

Graphene Future Applications

Why have you brought a burnt sausage into the lab? – Well Dimitrios we’ve all been there getting carried away at the barbecue and burn our sausages. Although you may be a bad cook, you may actually be a great chemist. – Great chemist? How can I be a great chemist by burning my sausages?…

Is This New Super Carbon Better Than Graphene?

Is This New Super Carbon Better Than Graphene?

Graphene is heralded as a wonder-material that could completely change our world. Its incredibly flexible, strong and conductive carbon structure promises to revolutionize energy storage, computing, and technology as we know it. But graphene isn’t the only nanocarbon out there with promising applications. There’s one in particular that’s been capturing scientists’ attention for decades, and…
