Graphene Frontiers Awarded $745k NSF Grant for ‘Roll-to-Roll’ Graphene Production

Graphene Frontiers, a Philadelphia-based advanced materials and nanotechnology company, has been awarded a $744,600 grant from the National Science Foundation. The funds will be used to develop roll-to-roll production of graphene. Graphene, the “miracle material” at the heart of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics, is a single-atom-thick layer of carbon. It is transparent, conductive, impermeable and exceptionally strong. These properties will enable high sensitivity chemical detection devices and biosensors, desalination membranes and flexible touchscreens, but existing graphene production techniques can only make it in small patches or flakes. Graphene Frontiers’ approach can produce meter-long sheets of the material and does not need to take place in a vacuum, making it more cost-effective and enabling it to be more easily integrated with other industrial processes.
