d. All of the above

  • A fine sheet of pure carbon, graphene is as thin as an atom, making it the skinniest material known. It is known as the wonder material.
  • At the same time though, it is 100 times stronger than steel, hugely pliable and can conduct electricity and heat better than anything else.
  • Samsung, the world’s number one smartphone maker, has taken out the most graphene patents — over 490 — followed by China’s Ocean’s King Lighting and IBM.
