    Part One: Conductive behaviour of graphene/carbon nanotube and graphene oxide/ carbon nanotube hybrid materials Experimental Introduction Although many CNTs and graphene based electrodes have been developed with outstanding properties, drawbacks are still noticeable using some methods. For instance, EPD method commonly produces unsatisfied CNTs film strength and on the other hand, CVD technique is costly. Moreover, graphene based electrodes needs lots of labour works which is time consuming and costly. Hence, there are still some hindrances in controlling CNT and graphene film preparation to get the large scale quality and the massive quantity[1][2]. Very recently, a simple and practical solution-casting method has been used to prepare the…

    2015, vol. 3, 75-87). Graphite nanosheets on the other hand have thinner sheets that range from about 2 to 5 nanometers (Chen, Weng, Wu, D and Wu, C. 2003, vol. 39, 2329-2335).Graphene,on the other hand, is made up of pure carbon in which where the atoms are fixed into a single layer, thus it creates a “honeycomb” pattern (Graphene-Battery.net 2013). Graphene is also a rare two-dimensional form of carbon. Graphite on the other hand, is a layered material and may be seen as a layered form of…

    In the book Stuff Matters, Mark Miodownik delves into the intricacies of the materials that allow the modern world to exist and thrive. In chapter 8, Unbreakable, Miodownik discusses the significance and characteristics of various forms of carbon in a historical lens. Although derived from the same element, graphite, diamond, and graphene all have unique properties unlike any other materials. Miodownik begins by offering a relatable anecdote to his childhood art class in order to truly show the…

    • 6 Pages

    Graphene is a monolayer thin film material with superior electrical properties and the potential to revolutionise the electronics industry. The existing manufacturing methods are sophisticated and leads to high price of graphene. As a chemical & materials engineer my research team developed a novel method which converts methane gas into graphene sheet via chemical vapour deposition at a much lower cost. In order to industrialise this method I have a few questions to ponder before the company…

    INTRODUCTION Graphene is the most required engineering material in the twenty first century, largely due to its exceptional mechanical, thermal and electrical properties. For Example monolayer of graphene sheet has Young’s modulus of about 1 TPa [Ref], shear modulus of 280 GPa [Ref], fracture strength of 130 GPa [Ref], thermal conductivity of 5000 W/mK [Ref], longitudinal sound velocity of 20Km/s [Ref], melting temperature of 4900 K [Ref] and also it has high electron mobility of 250,000 cm2/Vs…

    Graphene Lab Report

    • 11 Pages

    Introduction Graphene is considered as pure carbon in the form of a very thin, one atom thick nearly transparent sheet. It is very strong for its low weight (100 times more stronger than steel and it conducts heat and electricity efficiently. While scientists had theorized about graphene for decades, it was first produced in the lab in 2003. Because it is virtually two-dimensional, it interacts oddly with light and with other materials. Researchers have identified the, ballistic transport of…

    Facts; Graphene is one of the many forms of carbon. It being a form of carbon gives it the name "allotrope of carbon". The material consists of one layer of thick hexagonal lattice with one atom at each vertex (a vertex is a point where two or more curves, lines, or edges meet). It has the basic structure of any other form of carbon there is. For example, other forms of carbon are; Graphite, carbon nanotubes and charcoal. Structure; Each atom has four bonds, one sigma bond with each of…

    1. INTRODUCTION Graphene consists of single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice. It is the basic structural element of many other forms of carbon, such as graphite, charcoal, carbon nanotubes and fullerenes. In simple terms, graphene, is a thin layer of pure carbon bonded together in a hexagonal honeycomb lattice. It is the thinnest compound known to man, the lightest material known, the strongest compound discovered, the best conductor of heat at room temperature and also the…

    This is because of the strong van der Waals forces, that graphene tend to agglomerate rapidly [35]. Latex compounding or latex blending is one of the mixing methods which incorporate the rubber latex with aqueous dispersion of filler under certain condition. Latex particles with sizes approximately 50 nm, are uniformly stabilized in water. This condition facilitates the direct compounding of a suspension of nanoparticles in water with the polymer latex [36]. According to Gui et al. [9], latex…

    One of the sources that I chose to use in order to research this question is “Is graphene safe?” by David Bradley. This article was published by Materials Today in 2012. I chose this article because I wanted an article that used a substance that may be unconventional to help in the discussion of health related issues. Important information that I have found in the article is the explanation of what graphene really is. David Bradley states that it’s single layers of carbon that’s similar to the…
