Not a week passes without news of some new application of graphene being discovered in completely unexpected—at least to laymen—areas of life. This new wonder material, which is ultralight yet over 100 times harder than steel, has an unusually close relationship with the market. It is so useful to new technologies that it almost immediately finds a direct application in one form or another. It’s as if the market has been waiting for it for a long time. No wonder then that graphene has become a subject of continual public interest. We report on the many uses of graphene in almost every issue of The Polish Science Voice.
