About Graphene - a form of Carbon that holds intriguing possibilities for the future.
There are many forms in which we've used Carbon
Coal has helped us keep the lights on
So we can see the sparkling Diamonds
For the 21st century there's a new one
We've known for ages the allotrope that is graphite
Its structure shows why it helps us to write
Loosely bound layers which over each other slip
And if you take just one layer thats a single atom thick
What's the most exciting way it'll be used?
Could it when it's rolled up as a nanotube
Could it be inside electronics?
Not bad for something the guy who thought of it, thought could never exist
Graphene its time to live the dream
The most sexy carbon allotrope since Buckminster-Fullerine
The first modern pieces were made / from granite with sellotape
Forming tiny tiny tiny tiny graphene flakes
