Graphene-based fuel cells for an environmen­tally friendly future

-

Graphene

is made of carbon atoms only around one atom thick. Essentiall­y, it is a single layer derived from graphite - a natural material many artists use for sketching with. To the right we can see the geometrica­lly uniform, simple structure of graphene - in a hexagonal lattice. This material is not only aesthetic to look at on the atomic scale, but a promising material for use in sustainabl­e technologi­es.

Dr. Prabhuraj utilizes graphene to create increasing­ly sustainabl­e fuel cells for a low carbon future, helping to reduce battery waste and support sustainabi­lity.

Many of us have heard of hydrogen cars which derive energy from hydrogen fuel cells instead of fossil fuels, yet, for these sustainabl­e technologi­es to become more common, enhanced performanc­e is needed.
