Scientists from Northwestern University have published a report in the journal Nature Communication to suggest that defective graphene is not useless – it enhances the efficiency of fuel cells. Imperfect graphene has been discovered to have the ability to break down protons in seconds, and it can be used to produce extremely thin membranes that are made up of only single atoms.

Ultra thin and composed of a single atom thickness, graphene detects light much better than other sensors, much stronger than steel, and very flexible much more than steel, and come to think of it, it conducts power currents much better than copper wires.
