Singapore – 19th October 2021 – 2D Materials Pte Ltd is proud to welcome our new Technical Service and Development Scientist, Priscilla Lima, into the 2DM family. Priscilla is a polymer engineer by training, graduating with a Masters in Chemistry. She has spent more than 10 years in research, development and innovation in the polymer industry. With deep experience working with partners and suppliers both in Brazil as well as Mexico, China and Nicaragua, Priscilla brings along both knowledge and experience.
As 2DM forges ahead with pushing the boundaries of materials application, Priscilla’s addition to the team is set to complement 2DM’s technical support team, providing a more efficient approach and specialized attention in resolving development issues.
2DM is and has been producing high quality graphene based on the recently announced ISO standards, ISO/TS 21356-1:2021, since 2020 in the tons per annum scale. After the strategic partnership in 2019 with CBMM, 2DM has grown from a pilot plant into a fully functional commercial plant in 2020. Graphene has been known to be the one atom thick layer of pure carbon ‘wonder’ material. It is the strongest material ever measured and its capabilities as an energy conductor and thermal conductor are well recognized. There are many challenges to adopting graphene, among which is dispersion. Proper dispersion of graphene into the matrix is a key to enhancing the desired properties. Other than producing and supplying graphene, 2DM is helmed by renown scientists such as Dr Ricardo Oliveira and Professor Antonio Castro Neto, both whom are well qualified and experienced to provide technical assistance to clients looking to integrate 2DM’s graphene into their products. 2DM is also well advised by its advisory board, many of whom are experts in their respective fields, including Sir Konstantin Novoselov, the Nobel Laurette for Physics in 2010 for the discovery of graphene.
