Video of the Week: Graphene’s debut on Periodic Table of Videos


Chemist Martyn Poliakoff of University of Nottingham has featured a graphene edition of the Periodic Table of Videos. The video offers a short introduction of graphene, a reenactment of the initial discovery of the material and graphene’s potential in technology.

Poliakoff is the narrator of a 118-part series of short videos called The Periodic Table of Videos, which is a popular science project intended to familiarize the public with the periodic table. The site is worth checking out. Each short video offers an informative quick lesson in the element presented.

The graphene video is part of the new Molecular Video collection, which also includes a great video on buckminsterfullerence (Buckeyball). Enjoy!
