Graphene coatings on metal nanoparticles work as lubricants and dispersing agents and can fully replace currently used surfactants. These high-temperature-stable metal–polymer hybrid materials can be shaped by injection molding, enabling rapid manufacturing of electrical engines, actuators, and micromachines.
