About

First isolated by scientists at the University of Manchester back in 2004, graphene is made from a single atom layer of carbon. It is super lightweight, super conductive and super strong.

This 21st century wonder material has the potential to radically reshape the way we think, design and manufacture in a host of areas - from racing cars to rust-free paint, from mobile phones to medical science.

In this groundbreaking exhibition, discover the history of graphite and graphene, journey with scientists and artists exploring the cutting edge of material technology and immerse yourself in the wonders of a two dimensional world.

Wonder Materials: Graphene and Beyond is a world premiere, created by the Museum of Science and Industry, in partnership with the National Graphene Institute at The University of Manchester.
