MIT generates Electricity from Carbon Nanotubes

MIT engineers have discovered a new way of generating electricity using carbon nanotubes. A new material made up of carbon nanotubes have potential to generate electricity by collecting energy from its environment. How electricity is generated? These micro carbon particles can create current by interacting with liquid around them. Liquid, an organic solvent, attracts electrons ..





Graphene is one of the thinnest, strongest two dimensional materials. Graphene is a two dimensional material consisting of a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb or chicken wire structure. It is the thinnest material known and yet it is also the one of the strongest. It’s an  allotrope of Carbon.  Graphene is 200 times ..
