Graphene is one of solid phases of carbon, namely single-layer honeycomb lattice, single layer version of graphene; it may be planar but also made into tubes etc.

The modern discovery of graphene (Geim and Novoselov obtained Nobel price; the discovery intentionally given free to the world, and not patented!)
