Graphene standards

morreale Wednesday 22 of April, 2015
The Graphene Council Research road show presentation slides for Developing crucial industry standards for graphene and understanding the regulatory environment are now available. In this roads show presentation, The Graphene Council Research is advocating the development of industrial standards for graphene. Presently, there are no standards that define graphene and this is hindering the development and commercialization of the material. This presentation also provides some understanding the of the regulatory environment for the graphene and nanomaterials.
