Graphene-based sieve turns seawater into drinking water

A UK-based team of researchers has created a graphene-based sieve capable of removing salt from seawater.
The sought-after development could aid the millions of people without ready access to clean drinking water.
The promising graphene oxide sieve could be highly efficient at filtering salts, and will now be tested against existing desalination membranes.

Australian scientists use soybean oil to create graphene

Australian scientists have turned ordinary cooking oil into graphene, in a discovery they say lowers its cost to produce.
Graphene, a strong carbon material, is just one atom wide and conducts electricity better than copper.
It was discovered at the University of Manchester in 2004, winning its inventors a Nobel Prize in 2010.

Scientists cook up material 200 times stronger than steel out of soybean oil

An everyday cooking oil has been used to make graphene in a lab - a development scientists said could significantly reduce the cost and complexity of making the super-substance on a commercial scale.
Graphene, which is made of a layer of tightly-packed carbon, is light, 200 times stronger than steel and more conductive than copper.
