Graphene is being used to surface a road in Oxfordshire

Posted by in category: materials

Potholes may soon reach the end of the road, as an Oxfordshire village hosts the first UK trial of a graphene-based wonder material designed to prevent cracks forming.

Graphene is a super-strong material made of specially-structured carbon.

Work will begin today on laying a 820 yard (750 metre) –long stretch of the wonder material on the main road through Curbridge, west of Oxford.
