Wet-spun graphene oxide flakes create a more robust carbon fiber

By Damir Beciri
27 July 2013

carbon-fiber-knots-1Relying on large flakes of graphene oxide that were developed back in 2010 at the Rice University, Rice researchers developed a new carbon fiber with improved strength of its knots. This more robust carbon fiber could be used to increase the strength of many products that use carbon fiber, such as composite materials used in… »

One Comment20 January 2013

rice-go-radionuclides-1While roboticists efforts to develop robots able to withstand exposure to high levels of radiation are helpful for needed actions and monitoring after disasters with increased levels of radiation, researchers at Rice University and Lomonosov Moscow State University have found that graphene oxide¬†(GO) could actually be used to quickly remove radioactive material from contaminated water…. »
