Graphene is one of the most important compounds in the world ² The hybrid connected carbon atoms are closely packed to form a single layer of two-dimensional honeycomb lattice structure. Graphene has excellent optical, electrical and mechanical properties. It has important application prospects in materials science, micro nano processing, energy, biomedicine and drug delivery. It is considered to be a revolutionary material in the future.
Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, physicists at the University of Manchester in the UK, successfully separated graphene from graphite by micromechanical stripping method, so they jointly won the 2010 Nobel prize in physics. The common methods of graphene powder production are mechanical exfoliation, redox, SiC epitaxial growth, and the film production method is chemical vapor deposition (CVD).
On June 27, 2018, China graphene industry technology innovation strategic alliance released the new group standard named guide for products containing graphene materials. This standard specifies the nomenclature of new products related to graphene materials.
