Graphene is a two dimensional tiny sheet. A miracle material as BBC reported, once. It has enormous potentials to innovate; it is just limitation of your imagination when you are dealing with it. Researches on graphene are being boomed and the objective of this report is to evaluate this trend using non-conventional, yet innovative methods.
Among Sciencedirect.com reporting on top 25 hottest articles in chemistry category in 2011, 5 research papers were dedicated to graphene. It is a 20% capture on whole share of most demanding chemistry publications. Following trend graph from Google trends shows increasing search queries about graphene by their users. It shows a steady increasing trend, except a rapid peak which was occurred when inventors of graphene obtained Nobel.
