Bulk Synthesis of Graphene Nanosheets

Choudhuri, Sohan (2012) Bulk Synthesis of Graphene Nanosheets. BTech thesis.



Graphene, a monolayer form of carbon with two dimensional honeycomb lattices (sp2 hybridization) has shown excellent mechanical, electrical, thermal and optical properties. It is a promising component for many applications in the fields of electronics, composites, sensors as well as energy storage and conversion devices. These engineering applications require availability of graphene on the mass scale and thus suitable processes are necessary for its
production down to single sheet level. The present work focuses on the preparation of graphene on a bulk scale from graphite in an affordable and easy technique and the characterization of the graphene produced to test its quality. A report on the study of graphene by Raman spectroscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy and X-Ray Diffraction
analysis is given here.
