Graphene paper cited as one of the "most-read" papers by the Journal of Physical Chemistry B

A description of the preparation and properties of graphene sheets published in 2006 in the Journal of Physical Chemistry B has been cited as one of the “most-read” papers for the past 12 months ending June 2009. The Princeton University research team, includes ChE Profs. Aksay, Prud’homme, and Saville (deceased). In the paper, the production of the single sheets of graphene from the thermal exfoliation of graphite oxide is described. The chemical and topographical nature of the graphene is modeled and experimentally confirmed. Graphene is envisioned as a replacement for carbon nanotubes, which are much more difficult to produce, as graphene exhibits electrical and thermal conductivities as well as mechanical properties that closely match those of the nanotubes.”
