Strem Chemicals, Inc, a Cambridge based manufacturer of specialty chemicals for research and development, announced that it has signed an exclusive agreement with Catalyx Nanotech to make Stacked Graphene NanoFibers (SGNF) available for R&D purposes.

Stacked Graphene Platelet Nanofibers are grown via a patented process that decomposes carbon containing gases in the presence of metal catalyst particles. The structure of the stacked grapheme platelet nano fibres consists of graphene sheets oriented perpendicular to the growth axis like a stack of cards, spaced 0.34nm apart. The fibres have a mean width of 40-50nm and are 100-10,000nm long!
