Simple New Way to Make Graphene!

  1. jcsd
  2. This was fantastic. I will immediately find the article of it. UCLA is good at graphene issue. I had chance to work with Kang Wang in Summer 2011. It was an excellent experience for me.
     
  3. Do you have any idea about how was conversion of graphene oxide to graphene achieved?
     
  4. I dunno, according to the article, the LightScribe DVD laser is reducing the graphene oxide to the graphene. I don't know what the conversion efficiency is. Perhaps you could contact the researchers to ask them.
     
  5. I found the abstract of the research. If you want I can send it to you
     
  6. Nah, it's okay - but post it on here if you want, so that everyone can see.

    There might be a lot of people who'd like to try replicating this as a student/research project. I bet even highschoolers could do it, if all you need is a LightScribe DVD and the right plastic. It would be nice if highschool chemistry classes could try this out, and then perhaps do measurements on the graphene produced.
     
  7. Quite incredible.

    he did say Graphene and not Graphite, right? sounds like Graphite in the video.

    Look forward to seeing how this gets used, we've seen bendy screens and electronics before, so roll up computers aren't exactly unfeasable then.
