In the Nature Communications magazine appeared an article of scientists from Monash University in Clayton, Australia, under the leadership of Dan Li, that the Australian physicists have managed to create an entirely new kind of graphene- a rubber porous graphene, the structure of which is similar to the bark of cork oak. Rubber porous graphene has ultra flexibility and capacity to recover form, combining the properties of rubber and graphene. Back in 2010 the Nobel prize in physics received Konstantin Novoselov and Andre Geim for creation of graphene, which has unique physical and chemical properties. It is on the basis of this discovery, scientists from Monash University and created a rubber porous grapheme, combining of Nobel grapheme in structures, which were like a bark of the cork oak, by freezing mist particles of Nobel graphene in a container with water. According to Dan Li, the freezing of water removed of all the solid particles of suspended Nobel graphene into the space between the growing crystals of water, which led to the formation of the porous structure of the graphene particles, resembling the bark of the cork oak. Certain species of graphene is the strongest material in the world, their strength is 100 times stronger than steel, rubber graphene of researchers from Monash University is able keeping the load of 50,000 times its own mass, in addition, the density of the rubber porous graphene is very low, making it one of the lightest materials known to mankind. Therefore, the use of technology researchers from Monash University will create an ultra lightweight armor with previously unseen qualities and will form the basis for a wide variety of devices, where appropriate unusual strength, electrical conductivity and density- from using in household products to complete implementation of the project of a space elevator, THE VIDEO:
