New 2-D Materials Similar to Graphene Are Now Available, Research from University of Manchester Shows

Dozens of new 2-D materials similar to graphene are now available, thanks to research from Univ. of Manchester scientists. These 2-D crystals are capable of delivering designer materials with revolutionary new properties. The problem has been that the vast majority of these atomically thin 2-D crystals are unstable in air, so react and decompose before their properties can be determined and their potential applications investigated.
