Scientists: Coal Is Better, Cheaper For Making Graphene Quantum Dots
2013-12-06 16:55:31

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online A team of scientists from Rice University has found a way to use coal as a source of graphene quantum dots (GQD), tiny fluorescent particles that could be used in medical imaging and photovoltaic applications – according to a new report in Nature Communications. The use of coal to make GQDs would be much cheaper than conventional means, which are expensive and only produce small quantities. “We wanted to see what’s there in...
