Manchester, 2-DTech sign graphene research agreement



Graphene specialist 2-DTech has signed a memorandum of understanding with the University of Manchester that will see the two organisations sharing their resources and expertise. Once the agreement is finalised, 2-DTech will become a partner in the National Graphene Institute (NGI). 

"Through closer connection with The University of Manchester, we will be better able to promote more widespread use of this unique material across a broad spectrum of different commercial applications," said Nigel Salter, 2-DTech's managing director. "The facilities the University has for graphene research are the envy of the rest of the world. By having access to them, 2-DTech will be able to make significant technological advances." 

A series of collaborative projects will be embarked upon, with 2-DTech staff using the NGI's facilities. Amongst the initial projects will be graphene/polymer nanocomposites and 2D inks. 

James Baker, business director at the NGI, added: "We look forward to working with 2D-Tech on a number of graphene related projects in the newly completed NGI facilities and in developing the relationship into a strategic partnership in the near future. We expect to see a number of interesting opportunities for graphene applications and products and this relationship will help in the acceleration of graphene commercialisation."
