  • 11. Benefits of Nanotechnology• Eco Friendly – Energy saving – Reduce CO2 emission – Reduce/eliminate chemicals• Safe – Light weight and high strength nanocomposites – sensors – Water / air purification• Low Cost – Low maintenance cost – Wet process – Saving energy – High efficiency
  • 12. From Coal to Nano Carbon - GraphiteCharcoal and pencil -- the discovery and application of graphite can be traced back to theancient times and everywhere in our daily life Graphene (sp2-C) -Surface Area: Largest surface area -Tensile Strength: 200 times stiffer than steel -Young’s Modulus: 5~7 times stronger than steel -Electric conductivity: highest intrinsic mobility, 100 times of Si Graphite (sp2-C) -Thermal conductivity: 10 times more thermally conductive than copper Usually soft materials - - Highly anisotropic properties -Impermeability: Completely impermeable, even He atoms cannot squeeze through
  • 13. From Coal to Nano Carbon - GrapheneThe R&D and commercialization of graphene has been most active worldwide since Andre Geim &Konstantin Novoselov received the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics for their discovery of graphene - the oneatomic layer materials with superior mechanical, optical, electrical and thermal conductive properties. Graphene (sp2-C) -Surface Area: Largest surface area -Tensile Strength: 200 times stiffer than steel -Young’s Modulus: 5~7 times stronger than steel -Electric conductivity: highest intrinsic mobility, 100 times of Si -Thermal conductivity: 10 times more thermally conductive than copper -Impermeability: Completely impermeable, even He atoms cannot squeeze through
  • 14. From Coal to Nano Carbon – Carbon NanotubesSingle-wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT) and buckyball can be considered to be formed by rolling ofgraphene into a seamless cylinder or sphere, which has been widely used in the high performancecomposites, electronics and energy industries in the last 10 years. Carbon Nanotube -Single wall, few wall or multi-wall -Metallic or semiconducting -Tensile Strength: 100 times stiffer than steel -Modulus: 5~7 times stronger than steel -Electric conductivity: 1000 times more capacity to carry electric current than Cu-wire -Thermal conductivity: 10 times more thermally conductive than copper
  • 15. From Coal to Nano CarbonStrongest Material in the World? – Diamond or Graphene? → Diamond (sp3-C) V.S. Graphene (sp2-C):Graphene is stiffer than diamond → Strongest Material “Ever Measured” Diamond (sp3-C) - Most glorious and brilliant - Stiffest material known before the discovery of graphene
