Polymer-graphene nanocarpets to electrify smart fabrics

Polymer-graphene nanocarpets to electrify smart fabrics

Apr 23, 2018 Russia
Researchers have discovered a method to modify and use the one-atom thin conductor of current and heat, graphene without destroying it. Thanks to the novel method, the researchers were able to synthesize on single-layer graphene a well-structured polymer with a strong covalent bond, which they called 'polymer carpets'. T

Poisons Return in Electronics and Electrics: Escape Routes

Poisons Return in Electronics and Electrics: Escape Routes

Mar 8, 2018
There is a flood of new electronic and electrical devices reintroducing poisons very similar to those in tobacco smoke, diesel fumes, asbestos and other killers. There has been no tracking of what is arriving, assessing toxicity and likely prevalence. Uniquely, the new IDTechEx report, "Toxigen Materials and Alternatives in Electronics/ Electrics 2018-2028" now does just that.
