Graphene IS the new Nanotech

Graphene (a sub set of nano) IS the new nanotech (at least in terns of Google searches). The tipping point was the announcement of the €1Bn EU Graphene Flagship project. It is amusing that a sub set of nanotech is more popular than nanotechnology itself, as if  Elvis’s underpants became more popular than Elvis. Another analogy from William Burroughs’ ‘The Naked Lunch” springs to mind, but it might be too close to meal times for some people so I’ll leave it to the literati to discover.
