Although graphite is known as one of the most chemically inert materials, we have found that graphene, a single atomic plane of graphite, can react with atomic hydrogen, which transforms this highly conductive zero-overlap semimetal into an insulator. Transmission electron microscopy reveals that the obtained graphene derivative (graphane) is crystalline and retains the hexagonal lattice, but its period becomes markedly shorter than that of graphene. The reaction with hydrogen is reversible, so… Expand
Size- and shape-dependence of the graphene to graphane transformation in the absence of hydrogen

Mechanical properties of fully hydrogenated graphene sheets
Abstract Graphane is a two-dimensional structure consisting of a flat monolayer graphene sheet fully covered with hydrogen atoms attached to its carbon atoms in an alternating pattern. The uniqueExpand
Controlled hydrogenation of graphene sheets and nanoribbons.
TLDR
A comparison of Raman spectrum and conductivity data of partially hydrogenated monolayer and bilayer graphene suggests that the latter is also quite susceptible to adsorption of hydrogen atoms, despite a stiffer lattice structure. Expand
DFT investigations of the hydrogenation effect on silicene/graphene hybrids.

TLDR
These studies by transmission electron microscopy reveal that individual graphene sheets freely suspended on a microfabricated scaffold in vacuum or air are not perfectly flat: they exhibit intrinsic microscopic roughening such that the surface normal varies by several degrees and out-of-plane deformations reach 1 nm.
