For years now, scientists and manufacturing companies have evangelised graphene as a wonder material that will revolutionise all aspects of electronic communications and devices. Graphene is a 2-dimensional crystalline allotrope of carbon. Carbon is an element that exists in more than one crystalline form or 'allotrope' The most common and best known allotropes of carbon are graphite and diamond and there are others including graphene and the splendidly named Buckminsterfullerene. Graphene is touted as a stronger, lighter, more adaptable and more durable alternative to the silicon that still sits at the heart of computing and communications everywhere. It certainly has some remarkable qualities. It is easy to work with, more than 100 times stronger than the toughest steel and is very flexible. It is also lightweight and an excellent conductor and insulator of electricity and heat. What's more, it is comparatively inexpensive to fabricate. Claims are that graphene will be id
