Bringing Graphene to Market
A startup's conductive graphene inks can be used to print RFID
antennas
By Katherine Bourzac THURSDAY, AUGUST 06, 2009
A startup company in Jessup, MD, hopes later this year to bring to market one of the first
products based on the nanomaterial graphene. Vorbeck Materials is making conductive inks
based on graphene that can be used to print RFID antennas and electrical contacts for
flexible displays. The company, which is banking on the low cost of the graphene inks, has
an agreement with the German chemical giant BASF and last month received $5.1 million
