Okay, that video gave zero information. So here's a one of the reasons graphene hasn't taken over the world. An atom thick layer material isn't very practical and to my current knowledge nobody has made a large sheet of graphene. Current graphene is small sheets of single layer carbon and it's strength is made from it's immaculate structure which is atomically smooth. To make it practical for general use you would need to mix it with another material and form a composite (lots of research on that). But, as it is atomically smooth the matrix (other material) doesn't bond very well to it. To improve this bonding you can modify the structure, say oxidise but, this reduces the properties of graphene. The trade off is to perform the right amount of modification to the structure to enable bonding without trashing the properties. The next is to modify the matrix to enable better bonding to the modified sheet. Then lots of engineering to enable safe processing of graphene. Basically, there is a lot of science and engineering to make a strong material. Lots of research is going along this line and many publications have been produced, hopefully, all the hard work and research will pay off .

Probably because the technology of *super diamonds* have been developed during the same time and is more efficient & promising. Competition kills. Fundamental research is long & painstaking. Meanwhile Gen Y & Z want _everything on the spot._ As a scientist, it takes 20/25 years of research in order to design a new molecule. That's why a lot are just "recycled".

Graphene and other similar configurations of carbon should be handled with care: there is a chance that if these particles get lodged in lung cells they could cause the cell to become cancerous. Since these carbon structures are so strong cells cannot break them down and expel them during their waste cycles if they get trapped in the cell. These particles are also easily air borne and microscopic. Even cigarette ash can yield enough carbon nanotubes or graphene-like carbon structures that can harm lung cells.

It is the ALTERNATIVE ENERGY APPLICATIONS that they have actively suppressed -- banned really -- that are the REAL reason graphene has not (yet) been mass marketed. Since it is actually FULLY TRANSPARENT by nature, yet can STILL create electric current from LIGHT at MANY times the efficiency of silicon (read as 'Solar Power Windows and Skylights ;-) ), and basically NEVER WEAR OUT or even lose efficiency, while also acting as ARMOR against ANY kind of solar-panel-busting extreme weather assaults . . . well, you can see how THE most powerful industrial giants on the planet would be SERIOUSLY against this amazing material being utilized to its full extent :-)

Rather than profiting from the sale of the product, the companies of the future can make a profit through a contract with the customer or through a monthly or annual plan (as do telephony or television companies) and that guarantees the good performance of the from start to finish. And the return of the product to the company itself, with superior technology, avoiding discarding and scheduled obsolescence. Just a change of mentality

I bought a 9,000mah graphene battery on Kickstarter that's capable of being charged from 0 to full in 20 minutes. Love the idea, but my 10,000mah Lithium-ion battery is about 1/5th the size. Even if it doesn't charge as fast as the graphene battery, if I'm carrying it around with me to charge my phone, size is a real concern. (And both batteries charge my phone at the same speed.)
