Stickier than expected: Hydrogen binds to graphene in 10 femtoseconds

Graphene is an extraordinary material consisting of pure carbon just a single atomic layer thick. It is extremely stable, strong and conductive. In electronics, however, graphene has crucial disadvantages. It cannot be used as a semiconductor, since it has no bandgap. Now researchers have produced an ”atomic scale movie” showing how hydrogen atoms can chemically bind to graphene to produce a bandgap in one of the fastest reactions ever studied.

How to purify water with graphene

Graphene is capable of purifying water, making it drinkable, without further chlorination. Capturing bacterial cells, it forms flakes that can be easily extracted from the water. Graphene separated by ultrasound can be reused.

Decoupled graphene thanks to potassium bromide

When potassium bromide molecules arrange themselves between graphene and copper, it results in electronic decoupling. This alters the electrical properties of the graphene produced, bringing them closer to pure graphene.
