Crumpled graphene balls may be useful for stable surface area applications, graphene mass production

Researchers from Northwestern University discovered that crumpling graphene sheets into balls exhibits strain-hardening behaviors - which means that that these balls are remarkably resistant to aggregation in both solution and dried states. They are also recyclable. This can also lead to easier mass production of graphene.

The crumbled sheets can be useful in applications that need stable surface areas.
