Unique Carbon Allotropes Disrupt Electronics Market

Novamene

A new classification of carbon allotropes called Novamene is unveiled by a group of scientists and business leaders at Alfields, Inc., a US company that holds the intellectual property and is managed by principals based in Abu Dhabi. According to the group, Novamene paves way to faster switching transistors, better batteries, more efficient electronics, and better energy conservation. The concept of combining hexagonal diamond and ring carbon (graphene), provides the basis for the new carbon allotrope classification. As diamonds act as an insulators, and graphene as a conductor, this breakthrough is expected to transform the electronics industry and marks the first new carbon allotrope classification since that of Fullerenes by Nobel Laureates Robert F. Curl Jr., Sir Harold W. Kroto, and Richard E. Smalley in 1996. It may also mark the field's most significant advancement since Graphene by Nobel Laureates Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, 2010.
