Introduction to Graphene
Graphene is one atom-thick sheet of hexagonally arranged carbon which has superior properties.
1. Strength : approximately 200 times stronger than structural steel (given enough layers);
2. Weight: Supernaturally light
3. Thermal & electrical conductivity : highest current density (a million times that of copper) at room temperature. Holds the best record for conducting heat, beating diamond to it.
4. No band gap: A good candidate for photovoltaic cells
5. Transparency: Makes it ideal for use in touchscreens.
Why Graphitene is unique:
- Large scale production
- Consistent and reproducible production
- High quality and quality control
- Automation and computerization of manufacturing process
- Long-terms exclusive agreements in place for graphite supply
- In-house nanotech expertise for large-scale materials functionalization.
There are three main families:
High Purity Flake Graphite
Expanded Graphite Flakes
2. nanoCarbon Platelets (nCP)
High quality few-layer graphene flakes
3. Graphene Oxides (GO)
Graphene Oxide Dispersion
Reduced Graphene Oxide
