A joint research conducted by Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology and Sungkyunkwan University in Korea yielded an original technology for synthesizing amorphous graphene. Amorphous graphene is a material with different properties than crystalline graphene. It has lower conductivity and according to the researchers it can be suitable for various industries including desalination.

The team stated that “the latest achievement is significant in that it has expanded the range of two-dimensional materials”, “It will be possible to discover new areas of application by utilizing the new characteristics of the amorphous material.”
