2D crystal inks shortlisted in Royal Society of Chemistry Competition
Dr Cinzia Casiraghi, Reader in Carbon Nanostrucutures in the School of Chemistry, together with Dr Dr Antonios Oikonomou, of the National Graphene Institute, have been shortlisted in the Royal Society of Chemistry Emerging Technologies Competition 2016.
Shortlisted in the Materials categories, the pair will present their research into inkjet printable, biocompatible and water-based 2D-crystal inks for flexible devices to a panel of experts, in front of a live audience, on 15 June 2016. Part of Chemistry Means Business, The Emerging Technologies Competition is the Royal Society of Chemistry’s annual innovation initiative, turning promising ideas into commercial reality.
Now in its fourth year, the competition brings cutting edge science to the real world for the benefit of society. Produced by The University of Manchester, these water-based, inkjet printable, biocompatible 2D crystals inks can provide new paradigms for the manufacturing of low cost and flexible devices.
Good luck Cinzia and Antonios!
