Enhanced electrical, mechanical and thermal properties by exfoliating graphene platelets of larger lateral dimensions

Wang, Tao; Quinn, Matthew D. J; Notley, Shannon


Conventional liquid-phase graphite exfoliation (LPE) dramatically reduce the lateral dimension of graphene sheets to submicrometer levels due to bond cleavage induced by high shearing force or long processing time, resulting in highly degraded properties of graphene materials. Herein, a modified high-yielding LPE for producing graphene in the cosolvents of ethanol and water is demonstrated, via the prior use of an electrochemical expansion process on graphite. The electrochemically expanded...[Show more]
