Australian scientists use soybean oil to create graphene

February 1, 2017 from BBC World News

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.
Now researchers say they can make graphene with soybean oil, potentially making it more commercially viable.(Read More)
