Graphene paper - a new strong and flexible material

Researhcers from the University of Technology in Sydney, Australia, developed a new material called Graphene paper (GP), made from Graphite which is lighter, stronger, harder and more flexible than steel. It's also eco-friendly and recyclable. The new material is thinner than paper and ten times stronger than steel. The researchers say that the new material can be used in the automotive and aviation industries - to create lighter planes and cars which will be require less fuel, and yet be even more safe.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
