The "Miracle Material" of the 21st Century
PR Newswire
LONDON, July 11, 2012

/PRNewswire/ --
You may not have heard of graphene but it has been described as the "miracle
material" of the 21st Century. Indeed, graphene has the potential to transform
almost every aspect of our lives, and that's why wants to bring it to
the attention of every investor.
Graphene was discovered in 2004 by Dr Kostya Novoselov and Andre Geim and
their work won them the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. This revolutionary new
material is harder than diamond and three hundred times stronger than steel.
It is also flexible, transparent and can conduct electricity better than copper.
Thanks to its incredible properties, the potential applications for graphene are
almost limitless and today there are hundreds of laboratories all over the world
researching the capabilities of graphene and developing new materials based
on it. Graphene could transform industries such as; aerospace, automotive,
electronics, energy storage, communications and defence.
Speaking to yesterday, Professor Novoselov said
"I am certainly positive that graphene will be used in every single area it was
promised, from composite raw materials, to electronics, to sensors, we just
need to wait and see to what degree, whether it will completely replace silicon
or we will find another material that will replace silicon, but I don't think there is
any doubt that graphene will be used quite widely."
Graphene is likely to have its biggest impact on the electronics industry in
devices such as smartphones and laptops. It has the potential to dramatically
enhance these devices by replacing silicon chips with smaller faster processors,
as well as making them lighter, stronger and enhancing the battery life. Indeed,
Intel, IBM and Samsung are already working to create the next generation of
super-fast graphene-based processors.
Our goal at 247Bull is to bring opportunities such as the one represented by
graphene, to the attention of investors. We do this by analysing the powerful
trends that will shape our future and by connecting the dots to reveal a
complete picture of the global financial landscape.
History shows that the really big money is made by identifying, and boarding
these dominant macro trends early, and then riding them until they come to an
end. It is for this reason that a large part of the website is
dedicated to the goal of understanding and tracking these trends.
Through our work we hope to enrich the lives of investors by showing them how
they can both protect themselves and profit from what we see coming.
The recent acquisition of The Mountain Investor Report, a paid for investment
newsletter, has allowed 247Bull to launch a free specialist investment and
trading website.
Read our full length feature on graphene to see which three companies 247Bull
believes will provide investors with the best exposure to the potential rise of this
"miracle material".
