Top-Down, Scalable Graphene Sheets Production: it’s all about the Precipitate Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Graphene production has been widely explored and developed in the past decade. Most research has aimed at developing scalable, environmentally friendly and cheap procedures to produce defect-free graphene that can be used in a variety of applications such as mechanical properties enhancement and energy storage. Top-down graphene production approaches (from graphite) in liquid, which include high shear mixing and sonication, were recently scaled up. Nevertheless, their production yields have remained low (< 5%) due …
