I Will ethanol destroy double layered graphene?

  1. May 19, 2016 #1
    I am doing a lab and we get silver epoxy resin on our double layered graphene sample where we didn't want it.
    We can take off the silver paint using ethanol but worry it may destroy the thin layer.

    Will ethanol be okay to use? Are there any suggestions on what to use?

    Ethanol won't hurt graphene, but if the epoxy peels off, it might take the graphene with it at that spot.
