Why is Graphene useful although it should be very thin?

    Hello.

    I don't know much about the Graphene. I do know about this are 1. It is just a single layer of cabon bonding. 2. The mobility of electrons for Graphene is about 100 times faster than normal metal(right?) 3. It is very robust material better than diamond.

    In terms of its robustness, I don't know it has good advantage as it should be very thin. And for electronics, well...constrain of such a extreme thinkness would lead it is...useful?

    The intrinsic property of Graphene is good but..what is the point if we can't use it as bulk scale?

    Please give me the reason why it is useful in real industry.
