UK graphene start-up embraces modernity with e-commerce shop

UK start-up FGV Cambridge Nanosystems has launched an on-line eCommerce store for the sales of its CamGraph® Graphene Powder.

The company, born out of the University of Cambridge, launched the site just a year after opening a graphene production plant in Cambridge UK, which has an annual output of five tonnes.
