Make graphene from tea trees

Researchers from James Cook University in Australia have found a new way to make the wonder material from the tea tree plant

“The researchers found that they could manufacture a significant amount of almost defect-free graphene in a matter of seconds to minutes, while current methods usually take several hours,”

Importantly, the technique also works without the need for any catalysts, or non-renewable or toxic precursors. And it works at relatively low temperatures.
