15:00 - 15:20
The bulk graphene market will exponentially grow in the next few years. Its applications in composites will be the largest segment. Graphene materials are a family of materials with remarkable differences in morphology, aspect ratio, surface chemistry. Adequate selection and processing technique are key factors to obtain the desired properties.
