Comments & Suggestions


Modern industrial revolution:
Carbon age
Invention > development >
product takes only a few
years
Highest performance values
to humankind
But.
Incomplete belief of Material
of the Future: Industrial
problems need
hybrid&complex solutions
So, be patient
Nanotoxicology of graphene?
How, why?
So, be careful!...

100 years old inspiration from


radioactivity
400,000 bottle Radithor sold
in five years; Billionaire Eben
MacBurney Byers consumed
1500 ones in four years
Cause of Byers death: was
stated to be necrosis of the
jaw, abscess of the brain

The End
Thanks
