Materials: Graphene oxide is stiff yet bendy

An oxidized form of graphene — single-atom-thick layers of carbon — is extremely flexible, despite also being very resistant to stretching.Cécile Zakri at the University of Bordeaux in France and her colleagues measured how much layers of graphene oxide resist bending by using X-rays
