Graphene 101 — Adrian Nixon explains the basics
July 26, 2016 — Who is making graphene and where — that is an important thing to know. The author of the new Global Graphene Manufacturing Report, Adrian Nixon, asked this basic question when writing his columns for InvestorIntel. Adrian was surprised there was no single authoritative source of information about the state of the art of graphene manufacture worldwide. So he has created one for InvestorIntel. This report is totally independent and is not funded by any of the producers in the market. The market is dynamic and therefore the report will be updated at least twice per year, more if the pace of change demands it.
