Graphene is a two-dimensional modification of the chemical element carbon. Each carbon atom is connected to three other carbon atoms, so that a honeycomb-shaped, single-layer pattern is formed.

Graphene has a number of exceptional properties, including high tensile strength, elasticity, special electronic properties, etc.
