      Graphene has so many potential applications, some people say that it could become the basis for a flexible phone that you could bend (not like the iphone6 :p)
      But it’s all these properties that give it so many applications, so it’s really up to the imagination of scientists and technical hurdles that come along the way. I for one think it could be used as a means to generate electricy, and used as a membrane to filter gases or viruses or store hydrogen ga
