Graphene/GO-based elastic material

In summary, there is currently research being done on creating a graphene or graphene oxide-based polyester film with lower helium permeability. The best way to create such a material would be to use nanoporous graphene as a reverse osmosis membrane. This has been explored in recent studies and there are ongoing efforts to find a way to produce free-standing graphene oxide membranes. It is also suggested that using a GO film for airship envelopes could potentially be an improvement over the current use of PVDC film.

Is it currently possible to create a Graphene or Graphene Oxide-based polyester film, but with significantly lower helium permeability than currenlty avalible materials?

What would be the best way to create such a material and what type of processes and equipment would be involved in the production? How low permeability could realistically be achieved ?

I found these threads on Researchgate:

Airship envelopes are lined with polyvinylidene Chloride (PVDC) film, bonded to the fabric.
If the same could be done with polyester and a GO film I imagine it would be an improvement over PVDC...
 

Related to Graphene/GO-based elastic material

1. What is graphene/GO-based elastic material?

Graphene/GO-based elastic material is a type of material that is made up of graphene and graphene oxide (GO) sheets. Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice, while GO is a derivative of graphene with oxygen-containing functional groups. This combination creates a highly elastic material with unique properties.

2. What are the properties of graphene/GO-based elastic material?

Graphene/GO-based elastic material has several remarkable properties, including high strength, flexibility, and electrical conductivity. It is also lightweight and has a large surface area, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.

3. What are the potential applications of graphene/GO-based elastic material?

There are numerous potential applications for graphene/GO-based elastic material, including in the fields of electronics, energy storage, and biomedical engineering. It can be used to create flexible and stretchable electronic devices, improve the performance of batteries and supercapacitors, and develop new biomedical implants and drug delivery systems.

4. How is graphene/GO-based elastic material produced?

There are several methods for producing graphene/GO-based elastic material, including chemical vapor deposition, mechanical exfoliation, and solution-based methods. These methods involve the synthesis and manipulation of graphene and GO sheets to create a composite material with desired properties.

5. What are the current challenges in the development of graphene/GO-based elastic material?

Although graphene/GO-based elastic material has shown great potential, there are still some challenges in its development. These include the scalability of production methods, the cost of production, and the need for further research to fully understand and optimize its properties for specific applications.
