Until now, steel has been the primary material used for industrial purposes. The recent discovery of a new thinner, lighter, stronger and highly conductive material could provide an alternative to this reliable strong metal. What new material could replace a powerful and useful material such as steel? Not only is this material's molecular structure more sophisticated, it also has chemical properties outweighing those of steel and is also very cost-effective to produce. This material is:
Geim and Novoselov.
Renewable energy.
An atom thick.
Pencil lead.
Honeycomb (hexagonal) lattice.
Element 6 on the periodic table.
Electrical conductivity.
