Wonder Materials: Graphene and Beyond is a new exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) in Manchester, UK that explores the fascinating story of how graphene was first isolated, examines some exciting research into graphene now, and invites visitors to think about where graphene could take us in the future.
It was created in partnership with the National Graphene Institute at The University of Manchester and includes original artifacts from Nobel Prize winners Sir Andre Geim and Sir Konstantin Novoselov.
First isolated at the University of Manchester back in 2004, graphene is made from a single atom layer of carbon. It is super lightweight, super conductive, super strong, transparent and has amazing properties.
This 21st century wonder material has the potential to radically reshape the way we think, design and manufacture in a host of areas - from racing cars to rust-free paint, from mobile phones to medical science.
The Graphene Council (the largest community in the world for graphene professionals and researchers) is pleased to partner with the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry in promoting greater public public understanding of this fast evolving and revolutionary material.
