Scientists at University of Perugia – Italy in collaboration with Grafen Co. (Turkey) have discovered practical and cheap method to fabricate graphene based printed electronics.

Dr. Luca Valentini, assistant professor of the Materials Science and Technology Chair at the University of Perugia, together with his colleagues used only ordinary cellulose paper and pen to design a transfer process of graphene patterns. Writing in the December 15, 2013 issue of Materials Letters, the scientists say their approach could find application in flexible biodegradable electronics being cellulose substrate easily recyclable or biodegradable at a low cost and attractive for the realization of a sustainable flexible technology.
