In the decade and a half since researchers pulled the first atom-thick flake from a graphite block with transparent plastic tape, graphene’s remarkable properties, and those of its rolled-up cousin, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), have been the subject of intense scientific interest. Yet, despite the promise of these seemingly magical materials, surprisingly little progress has been made toward bringing any of the myriad products imagined to market, or even to the prototype stage. The main reason for that gap lies in the rapid growth of demand for these materials, which has outpaced the new industry’s ability to guarantee quality.
