Microwaved Graphene Nanoribbons are the next big thing in chemical innovation, now finding a major use for the oil and gas Industry. Drill cutting heads containing a low power microwave unit, ‘melts’ the graphene nanoribbon polymer into minute fissures and cracks.
This stunning advancement in this Industry also has many other uses in other fields such as Optics, Solar Panels, Micro-motors, and much more:
