I think you have the link wrong on this post DD, or am I missing something?

Re: Miracle material finds woirthwhile use


I read this. Weird properties indeed.

A material that will stop helium and ethanol but allow water to pass. This could revolutionise distilleries.

I found another article on Graphene in New Scientist looking at other uses:

A graphene transister is not far away.

This is looking like the wonder material of the 21st century.

Re: Miracle material finds woirthwhile use


I can only imagine the processing power we will have once they stop the leakage in the resisters, and start making chips. 5 years from now we will look back at our rigs and go  scratch-head how did I ever use something so slow ?

It's been a while since we heard from "Wonder material" Graphene on here, and to follow up nicely on snowy's post above:

The Uk Gov is to fund Graphene research:

Re: Miracle material finds woirthwhile use


Looks good.

I did read up on graphene transistors, in "Scientific American" I think, and it appears the leakage current on the these devices is a fundamental problem. It means you can't do a digital transistor due to the off current is too high. They will make good analogue transistors though, power amps and such like.

Do you think Mrs DD will mind if I borrow the blender to whip up a batch?  scratch-head

Should be OK, but I would ask, just in case  lol
