Just In: Graphdiyne!
Graphdiyne (GDY) is a relatively new highly stable carbon allotrope demonstrating positive potential in the advancement of future technologies accross many industries. It is a single atom thick 2D material exhibiting uniformly distributed pores of dimensions less than a single nanometer. Its characteristics can be finessed for use in applications such as gas filtration, helium separation (chemical and isotopic), water filtration and purification technologies, lithium storage and even as a potential replacement for current silicon transistors. Compared to Graphene, Graphdiyne distinguishes itself in that it has a natural band gap of approximately 0.47 eV, but still maintains high electrical conductivity, acute hardness and high thermal resistance.
