Recently, scientists at the University Of Wyoming have demonstrated the production of nano-graphite, a key ingredient for the creation of graphene, as having properties that allow it to be made within a conventional microwave.

The process, which involves coal powder being placed on copper foil, and sealed in a glass container with argon and hydrogen, which is then placed within a microwave oven, generating Nano-graphite materials. Although low quality and slow, this process can be advanced upon and optimized at a larger scale for easier production of Nano-graphite.
