LONDON, July 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
You may not have heard of graphene but it has been described as the "miracle material" of the 21st Century. Indeed, graphene has the potential to transform almost every aspect of our lives, and that's why 247Bull.com wants to bring it to the attention of every investor.
Graphene was discovered in 2004 by Dr Kostya Novoselov and Andre Geim and their work won them the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. This revolutionary new material is harder than diamond and three hundred times stronger than steel. It is also flexible, transparent and can conduct electricity better than copper.
Thanks to its incredible properties, the potential applications for graphene are almost limitless and today there are hundreds of laboratories all over the world researching the capabilities of graphene and developing new materials based on it. Graphene could transform industries such as; aerospace, automotive, electronics, energy storage, communications and defence.
Speaking to 247Bull.com yesterday, Professor Novoselov said
"I am certainly positive that graphene will be used in every single area it was promised, from composite raw materials, to electronics, to sensors, we just need to wait and see to what degree, whether it will completely replace silicon or we will find another material that will replace silicon, but I don't think there is any doubt that graphene will be used quite widely."
Graphene is likely to have its biggest impact on the electronics industry in devices such as smartphones and laptops. It has the potential to dramatically enhance these devices by replacing silicon chips with smaller faster processors, as well as making them lighter, stronger and enhancing the battery life. Indeed, Intel, IBM and Samsung are already working to create the next generation of super-fast graphene-based processors.
Our goal at 247Bull is to bring opportunities such as the one represented by graphene, to the attention of investors. We do this by analysing the powerful trends that will shape our future and by connecting the dots to reveal a complete picture of the global financial landscape.
History shows that the really big money is made by identifying, and boarding these dominant macro trends early, and then riding them until they come to an end. It is for this reason that a large part of the 247Bull.com website is dedicated to the goal of understanding and tracking these trends.
Through our work we hope to enrich the lives of investors by showing them how they can both protect themselves and profit from what we see coming.
The recent acquisition of The Mountain Investor Report, a paid for investment newsletter, has allowed 247Bull to launch a free specialist investment and trading website.
