World’s Strongest Material Is Carbyne


diamonds

Diamond is no longer the strongest material out there however the key to the  strongest material that scientists have managed to make still lies in the the carbon atom linked together by either double or alternating single and triple atomic bonds. Without doubt nano material have proved themselves to deserve the most attention of scientists and the previous strongest material “graphene”.

Carbyne

Computer models at Rice University prove that Carbyne is the world’s strongest material and amazingly it is 200 times stronger than steel and has twice the tensile strength as compared to that of graphene.

“You could look at it as an ultimately thin graphene ribbon, reduced to just one atom, or an ultimately thin nanotube, it could be useful for nano mechanical systems, in spintronic devices, as sensors, as strong and light materials for mechanical applications or for energy storage.”said Boris Yakobson professor of Mechanical Engineering at Rice.

Naturally all this comes with few problem such as the material is that cheap secondly it can not be produced in large quantities. Once scientist overcome these issues than we could be looking at a revolutions in many industries.

Here are a few other strong materials.
