Here's a article about Borophene that could be much more promising than graphine... using boron atoms not carbon.... The technology is all about the future of smallness for computing and more.
Making flat layers of atoms has interesting applications. But Borophene seems to allow for crystal-type layouts that have lots of interesting properties. It should handle heat well, it is flexible, and it conducts electricity. The applications are for computers, of course. Seems extremely promising for various types of batteries, starting with Lithium.
But the many other possibilities include the fact that Borophene can attract and hold hydrogen atoms, at a rate of up the 15% of weight.
Borophene is new, really only available since 2015.
Very cool technology. Lots of work to be done before it is prime-time.
Can't wait to see where this technology leads us.
