Extraordinary water adsorption characteristics of graphene oxide

This is a combined effort of researchers from Australia India and Japan. The paper is available at this link. They looked at the way graphene oxide nanoplates (GO) interacted with water vapour. They observed that GO imparts a very high water uptake capacity up to 0.58 gram of water per gram of GO (g g-1) …

New graphene / polymer composite made by bonding nanoplates

This is work done by a joint Chinese and American team. They have glued together graphene nanoplates to make a composite that does not need carbon fibre. The graphic shows the steps they had to go through to make this work. The resulting composite conducted electricity and was fairly strong with a tensile strength of …

MIT’s roll-to-roll process making CVD graphene

MIT’s roll-to-roll process making CVD graphene Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) first announced their work making graphene by a continuous process back in 2015. It is a measure of just how difficult this is in practise that over three years later the team is still developing the process. They are making good progress though. Now …

HOW DO I TELL YOU ABOUT MY WORK WHEN MOST OF WHAT I DO IS CONFIDENTIAL?

This has been occupying my thoughts for some time since I decided to open up my work to the wider world.  I’ll explain what I do… From 2002 I have been working as facilitator with top management teams; I have a particular skill in helping strategically minded people engage with those more operationally minded. In …
