The “Miracle Material” of the 21st Century
LONDON, July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
You may not have heard of graphene but it has been described as the “miracle material”
of the 21st Century
[http://www.247bull.com/graphene-from-nobel-prize-to-investment-opportunity ]. Indeed,
graphene has the potential to transform almost every aspect of our lives, and that’s why
247Bull.com [http://www.247bull.com ] wants to bring it to the attention of every
Graphene was discovered in 2004 by Dr Kostya Novoselov and Andre Geim and their work
won them the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics
[http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/physics/laureates/2010/novoselov.html ]. This
revolutionary new material is harder than diamond and three hundred times stronger than
steel. It is also flexible, transparent and can conduct electricity better than copper.
Thanks to its incredible properties, the potential applications for graphene are
almost limitless and today there are hundreds of laboratories all over the world
researching the capabilities of graphene and developing new materials based on it.
Graphene could transform industries such as; aerospace, automotive, electronics, energy
storage, communications and defence.
Speaking to 247Bull.com [http://www.247bull.com ] yesterday, Professor Novoselov said
“I am certainly positive that graphene will be used in every single area it was
promised, from composite raw materials, to electronics, to sensors, we just need to wait
and see to what degree, whether it will completely replace silicon or we will find another
material that will replace silicon, but I don’t think there is any doubt that graphene
will be used quite widely.”
Graphene is likely to have its biggest impact on the electronics industry in devices
such as smartphones and laptops. It has the potential to dramatically enhance these
devices by replacing silicon chips with smaller faster processors, as well as making them
lighter, stronger and enhancing the battery life. Indeed, Intel, IBM and Samsung are
already working to create the next generation of super-fast graphene-based processors.
Our goal at 247Bull [http://www.247bull.com ] is to bring opportunities such as the
one represented by graphene, to the attention of investors. We do this by analysing the
powerful trends that will shape our future and by connecting the dots to reveal a complete
picture of the global financial landscape.
History shows [http://www.247bull.com/get-rich-slowly ] that the really big money is
made by identifying, and boarding these dominant macro trends early, and then riding them
until they come to an end. It is for this reason that a large part of the 247Bull.com
[http://www.247bull.com ] website is dedicated to the goal of understanding and tracking
Through our work we hope to enrich the lives of investors by showing them how they can
both protect themselves and profit from what we see coming.
