This issue of High Tech Materials TOE showcases some of the major developments in graphene and graphene-based composites across the globe. A few manufacturing processes that would enable improved yield of high quality graphene have been showcased.
A graphene oxide-based membrane that is suitable for water remediation has been discussed. The TOE also highlights a sensor synthesized with graphene, which could disrupt the agricultural segments by monitoring the water movement from roots to leaves in crops. Finally, non allergenic fabrics infused with graphene, which could provide not just comfort, but also modulate the body temperature of the user are also showcased.
The High-Tech Materials TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications, and strategic insights on various materials across industries. Some material technologies include lightweight materials, bio–based materials, ceramics, smart materials, fibers, nanomaterials, responsive materials, polymers, woven and non woven materials, polymers and plastics and packaging materials.
The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research and innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
