Generallly, most parts of a smartphone are made of silicon and other compounds, which are expensive and break easily. Researchers said,” Combining semiconducting molecules C60 with layered materials, such as graphine and hBN, they could produce a unique material technology, which could revolutionize the concept of smart devices. This process, which is called van der waals solids, allows compounds to be brought together and assembled in a predefined way”. This new ‘miracle material’ has similar physical properties to Silicon but it has improved chemical stability, lightness and flexibility, which could be used in smart devices and would be much less  to break,” said Elton Santos from Queen’s University.
