Carbyne – New Hardest Material Is Double The Strength Of Graphene

A team from Rice University have successfully created carbyne, a form of carbon bond that resembles diamond, but is 40 times stronger. The material was first theorised in the 1960s, but until now no-one has successfully created it, with some scientists even predicting it would be impossible to synthesise in ‘real world’ conditions. The team from Rice managed to create, and stabilise, the material at room temperature. It’s thought it could have uses in micro-mechanics and incredibly strong, light-weight fabrics.
