Graphene is starting to emerge as valuable industrial aid according to planarTECH (Holding) Limited chief executive J Patrick Franz

PlanarTECH specialises in adapting the ‘wonder-material’ graphene into industrial and commercial applications and says that the number of real products using the one atom thick material is growing rapidly.

Using tech researcher Gartner’s well-known illustration (see link) of the lifecycle of new developments, Frantz believes it has now exited the Trough of Disillusionment and entered the Slope of Enlightenment.

Examples of real products include: biosensors; wearable sensors; body armour; sports equipment; cookware and cosmetic products such as face masks.

Frantz has also written about other emerging 2D materials that are a bit further away from commercialisation, especially those in the group of Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDs).
