Our company history is easily described as humble beginnings. Adrian Nixon, a scientist and business consultant, began a private research project, providing his scientific analysis. His goal was to create information and understanding about the emerging world of graphene and other 2D materials.
Adrian realized he had discovered a valuable resource in simplifying complex science into an easy-to-understand one-page analysis.
As the pace of global development activity increased around the world, the project quickly became a significant regular undertaking.
