Dispersible Single layer Graphene with high surface area (Powder and Dispersion)

Product Detail

CAS No.: 7782-42-5

Single-layer graphene has emerged as a highly capable material that has the ability to replace outdated technologies and benefit countless industries. Incredibly lightweight yet highly durable, graphene is able to conduct a high level of electricity through a minuscule amount of material. Applications of graphene include small electrical circuits and outlets, medical equipment, solar cells, and more. Due to its flexible nature, many industry leaders have begun using graphene as a way to ensure the safety of their various equipment while not risking its efficiency. Single-layer graphene has proven to be an incredibly reliable resource that is both cost-efficient and energy-efficient.

Single layer graphene from ACS Material is available in powder or dispersion forms. The single layer graphene powder is created using a combination of thermal exfoliation reduction and hydrogen reduction. The single layer graphene dispersion is created via our own mechanical stripping and dispersion method. Both products are metal ion free and can be used as conductive agents to improve the high rate charge-discharge capacity of batteries. In addition to batteries, single layer graphene powders and dispersions are used in supercapacitors, lead-acid cells, solar cells, semiconductor chips, graphene films, coatings, as well as in many biomaterials.

Preparation Method

Powder: Thermal exfoliation reduction + Hydrogen reduction

Notes: Please ultrasonicate the single layer graphene dispersion before use.

Dispersible Single Layer Graphene is prepared by completely reducing graphene oxide‚ which is prepared by the modified Hummer’s method. The commonly used prepare method creates a denser graphene which is subject to aggregations. The resulting graphene agglomerates are not soluble or redispersable in water or other polar solvents‚ and this makes further processing difficult. Our Dispersible Graphene avoids this problem and can be redispersed in many solvents.

ACS Material can also provide Fluorinated Graphene. Read More>>

How to disperse the Single Layer Graphene Powder into Aqueous Systems?

The SLG product produced by ACS Material has no functional groups on the surface‚ and it can be dispersed in water or ethanol with a dispersion aid. These two dispersion aids have been proven to be useful:

1) Sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate (SDBS)
2) Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS)

Add dispersant to water‚ and then add single layer graphene with the use of an ultrasonic mixer. The addition rate of single layer graphene should be carefully controlled until the desired concentration is achieved. Experiments are needed to determine the appropriate quantity of dispersant in your system‚ but in our experience with water‚ 10mg/ml dispersant is preferred. The sonication time should be 15+ minutes. If you notice some settling‚ assuming you have not attempted to over-concentrate the dispersion‚ the graphene can be redispersed with the aid of sonication. The maximum concentration of single layer graphene in water is about 0.1 mg/ml with SDBS as dispersant‚ or 100mg/l.
