A startling research reveals that flaws in graphene increase the efficiency of cells. According to the report printed in Journal Nature Communication, researchers from Northwestern University worked together with scientists of five other institutes for the research. They discovered that imperfect graphene can break proton in few seconds. It can easily produce extremely thin membrane that consists of single atom. Normally, it is a very complicated task to produce thin sheet of protons with conventional methods.

Graphene is one of the wonder materials of the 21st century. It is impossibly thin, down to just one atom thick, it detects light better than any sensor, is stronger than steel but highly flexible and a better conductor of currents than copper.
