AIXTRON CVD INSTALLATION

Graphenemex is completing the installation of the latest state-of-the-art graphene production equipment in its facilities located in Mexico City. The AIXTRON CVD system will enable the deposition of graphene and carbon nanotubes on 6-inch substrates. The equipment is expected to start operations during February of 2017 and to strengthen our position as the Mexican and Latin American leading producer of Graphene.

CONFERENCE AT UASLP

Graphenemex fue invitado para dar una conferencia en el tercer encuentro del Doctorado Institucional en Ingeniaría y Ciencia de Materiales de la UASLP. Una gran experiencia y oportunidad para hablar sobre el grafeno en esa prestigiosa universidad.

Graphene nanoribbons show promise for healing spinal injures

MIKE WILLIAMS – SEPTEMBER 19, 2016

Rice scientists develop Texas-PEG to help knit severed, damaged spinal cords

 

The combination of graphene nanoribbons made with a process developed at Rice University and a common polymer could someday be of critical importance to healing damaged spinal cords in people, according to Rice chemist James Tour.

The Tour lab has spent a decade working with graphene nanoribbons, starting with the discovery of a chemical process to “unzip” them from multiwalled carbon nanotubes, as revealed in a Nature paper in 2009. Since then, the researchers have used them to enhance materials for the likes of deicers for airplane wings, better batteries and less-permeable containers for natural gas storage.

Now their work to develop nanoribbons for medical applications has resulted in a material dubbed Texas-PEG that may help knit damaged or even severed spinal cords.

A paper on the results of preliminary animal-model tests appears in the journal Surgical Neurology International.
