The Australian researchers who successfully unboiled an egg are turning their attention to capturing the energy of graphene oxide to make a more efficient alternative to lithium-ion batteries.
The Flinders University team in South Australia has partnered with Swinburne University of Technology in Victoria, ASX-listed First Graphene and manufacturer Kremford.
The collaboration is developing a graphene-oxide-powered battery, a super-capacity energy storage alternative to emerging lithium-ion battery technology.
Graphene is the lightest, strongest, most electrically conductive material available and has been predicted to generate revolutionary new products in many industry sectors. However, unreliable quality and poor manufacturing processes has prevented an industrial graphene market.
