Graphite's insolubility in conventional solvents is a major obstacle to its utilization. This challenge is typically addressed by chemical modification such as oxidation, followed by reduction. However, pristine graphene possesses superior properties as oxidation and reduction lead to degradation of the graphene. Here we demonstrate the use of an interfacial trapping technique to assemble laterally macroscopic films of pristine graphene that are up to 95% transparent. This is accomplished by… Expand

Processable aqueous dispersions of graphene nanosheets.
TLDR
It is reported that chemically converted graphene sheets obtained from graphite can readily form stable aqueous colloids through electrostatic stabilization, making it possible to process graphene materials using low-cost solution processing techniques, opening up enormous opportunities to use this unique carbon nanostructure for many technological applications. Expand
Wettability and surface free energy of graphene films.
TLDR
Graphene sheets produced through chemical exfoliation of natural graphite flake and hydrazine conversion are found to be hydrophilic and hydrophobic, and isolated graphene layers seem more difficult to wet in comparison to graphite, and low adhesion work was found in the graphene-liquid interface.

Large-scale pattern growth of graphene films for stretchable transparent electrodes
TLDR
The direct synthesis of large-scale graphene films using chemical vapour deposition on thin nickel layers is reported, and two different methods of patterning the films and transferring them to arbitrary substrates are presented, implying that the quality of graphene grown by chemical vapours is as high as mechanically cleaved graphene.

TLDR
It is reported that GO is an amphiphile with hydrophilic edges and a more hydrophobic basal plane, and the ease of its conversion to chemically modified graphene could enable new opportunities in solution processing of functional materials. Expand
