The graphene market offers numerous opportunities for investors… if you know the right place to look. To gain some insight into the market, the Investing News Network sat down with Dr. Khasha Ghaffarzadeh. Ghaffarzadeh, who holds a PhD from the University College London and a MPhil from the University of Cambridge, is a globally respected graphene expert and Research Director at IDTechEx. Most recently, he authored the report “ #Graphene, 2D Materials and Carbon #Nanotubes: Markets, Technologies and Opportunities 2016-2026.” And so, without further ado, here’s what Ghaffarzadeh has to say about the graphene market. Read on to hear his breakdown of the market basics and stay tuned for next week’s article, where Ghaffarzadeh looks ahead to the future to outline the market’s top investing trends. What is graphene? Attractive to both resource and technology investors, there remains some confusion about what exactly graphene is. Ghaffarzadeh explains that “graphene, in its ideal form, is a two dimensional layer of carbons.” Ideal graphene is a “super material:” incredibly thin with a large surface area, the material is the “strongest material ever measured” and also one of the stiffest. Moreover, “it has the highest intrinsic mobility, record thermal conductivity, highest current density, and so on.” Given this diverse set of properties, the material has wide applicability – from “sensors to batteries to composites and so on.”
