Researchers developing 2-D materials similar to graphene

Chemists are working to synthesize the next generation of super materials for high-performance electronics, solar cells, photodetectors and quantum computers. While they have made progress with compound materials, they have not yet succeeded in developing unaltered or "freestanding" materials for such devices, according to a review published in the journal Science and Technology of Advanced Materials.
