Liquid phase production of graphene by exfoliation of graphite in surfactant/water solutions.
We have demonstrated a method to disperse and exfoliate graphite to give graphene suspended in water-surfactant solutions. Optical characterization of these suspensions allowed the partialExpand

Scalable production of large quantities of defect-free few-layer graphene by shear exfoliation in liquids.
To progress from the laboratory to commercial applications, it will be necessary to develop industrially scalable methods to produce large quantities of defect-free graphene. Here we show thatExpand

Liquid Exfoliation of Layered Materials
Background Since at least 400 C.E., when the Mayans first used layered clays to make dyes, people have been harnessing the properties of layered materials. This gradually developed into scientificExpand

Atom-by-atom structural and chemical analysis by annular dark-field electron microscopy
Direct imaging and chemical identification of all the atoms in a material with unknown three-dimensional structure would constitute a very powerful general analysis tool. Transmission electronExpand

High Performance Nanotube-Reinforced Plastics: Understanding the Mechanism of Strength Increase†
Polymer–multiwalled carbon nanotube composite films were fabricated using two types of polymer matrices, namely poly(vinyl alcohol), (PVA) and chlorinated polypropylene. In the first case, the PVAExpand

Liquid exfoliation of solvent-stabilized few-layer black phosphorus for applications beyond electronics
Few-layer black phosphorus (BP) is a new two-dimensional material which is of great interest for applications, mainly in electronics. However, its lack of environmental stability severely limits itsExpand

Debundling of single-walled nanotubes by dilution: observation of large populations of individual nanotubes in amide solvent dispersions.
Large-scale debundling of single-walled nanotubes has been demonstrated by dilution of nanotube dispersions in the solvent N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP). At high concentrations some very largeExpand

Spontaneous debundling of single-walled carbon nanotubes in DNA-based dispersions
Natural salmon testes DNA has been used to disperse single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) in water. It has been found that the primary factor controlling the nanotube bundle size distribution in theExpand
