You can make graphene with a high powered kitchen blender

If you haven’t already seen the news, scientists have figured out how to make graphene in a kitchen blender.  My first thought upon reading this was to wonder whether or not my Blendtec Designer Series or my Vitamix Professional Series 300 (aka 7500) would be better suited to making graphene at home.  Unfortunately, the article starts by repeatedly warning me not to try making graphene in my blenders at home.

I did find it interesting the article called the 400W blender they used high powered, when the Blendtec and Vitamix are both more than triple that.

Unfortunately, this isn’t a recipe post, and I can’t relay my experiences trying to make graphene.  But who knows?  Maybe Blendtec and Vitamix blenders will soon find themselves in demand for creating graphene thanks to this new discovery.
