Synthesis and Development of Low-Cost and High-Quality Graphene Nanostructures

Graphene is the thinnest, lightest, strongest, and a highly conductive material discovered to date, which makes it attractive for diverse applications, ranging from energy storage devices, electronics and automotive to construction. Despite the unique properties of graphene and its potential application in various industries, the widespread application of graphene is still limited due to the high cost of starting materials, high production cost, or low production volume. In this project, we will develop cost-effective methods to synthesize high-quality and low-cost graphene on a large-scale from inexpensive and abundant natural carbon resources. It is anticipated that the outcome of this project will help the industry partner to produce high-quality graphene at a lower cost and reduce environmental footprints.
