Graphene: the world's most famous two-dimensional crystal

Although hundreds of two-dimensional crystals exist, graphene is indisputably the most well-known. Why is it so famous? Certainly, due to its intrinsic characteristics. In fact, graphene is made of a layer of monatomic carbon, which has a mechanical resistance about 100 times higher than iron, thickness being equal, and moreover, it is flexible and stretchable. It has extraordinary thermal and electric conductivity, its current carrying capacity being higher than copper. In addition, it is optically transparent, has a huge surface area and is a virtually impermeable barrier against the vast majority of chemical elements.

The ability to mix two-dimensional crystals with already known materials (such as plastics) opens up a scenario unimaginable until a few years ago

The ability to mix graphene and other two-dimensional crystals with already known materials, such as plastics, opens up scenarios that were unimaginable until a few years ago in the industrial sector, thanks to the implementation of composite materials with mechanical, electric, optical and thermal properties impossible to achieve until now. As producers, we wish to be mindful and sensitive to the needs of companies that want to innovate, able to solve any problems by putting at their disposal new materials that will differentiate them on the market, and capable of conveying their best image to end customers.

BeDimensional is proud to have contributed, together with the Graphene Labs of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia, to the realization of the first

THE VALUE OF SCIENCE ON THE TERRITORY

BeDimensional S.r.l. was born from the Technological Transfer program of the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), and took inspiration from the initiative of leading worldwide researchers in the research on graphene and two-dimensional materials. The activity of BeDimensional is based on a patented method of production of two-dimensional crystals allowing control of their morphological properties.

The family od 2-Dimensional crystals

In addition to graphene, there are several other two-dimensional materials, made of different atoms and with different properties, produced by the same technology as graphene: Boron Nitride, Molybdenum Disulfide or Tungsten Disulfide, Black Phosphorus, Gallium Sulfide, Tungsten Selenide, Niobium Selenide, Tantalum Selenide.
