Nanotube rebar makes graphene twice as tough

Nanotube rebar makes graphene twice as tough

Aug 9, 2018 United States
Rebar graphene is the nanoscale analog of rebar (reinforcement bars) in concrete, in which embedded steel bars enhance the material's strength and durability. Rebar graphene, developed by the Rice lab of chemist James Tour in 2014, uses carbon nanotubes for reinforcement.
