Graphene: Synthesis, Properties, and Phenomena by C. N. R. Rao, Ajay K. Sood

By C. N. R. Rao, Ajay K. Sood

Due to the fact its discovery in 2004, graphene has been an outstanding sensation because of its specified constitution and weird homes, and it has in simple terms taken
6 years for a Noble Prize to be provided for the sphere of graphene study. This monograph provides a well-balanced review on all components of
medical curiosity surrounding this interesting nanocarbon. in a single convenient quantity it bargains complete assurance of the subject, including
chemical, fabrics technological know-how, nanoscience, physics, engineering, lifestyles technology, and strength functions. different graphene-like, inorganic layered fabrics also are discussed.

Edited by means of hugely venerated scientists, this can be a useful spouse for inorganic, natural, and actual chemists, fabrics scientists,
and physicists.

It appears that there is a change in the magnetic structure in HGH_2 compared to HG. 05 M solution of TTF. The magnetization data given in the figure are corrected for the weight of adsorbed TTF. Magnetic hysteresis data at 300 K and magnetization data at 1 T are shown in the insets. Magnetization data of HG with adsorbed TCNE are similar to those with TTF, except that the decrease in magnetization relative to pure HG is much smaller.

5 Inorganic Graphene Analogs There are many inorganic compounds with layered structures, the most well known being MoS2 , WS2 , and BN. Fullerene-type structures of these materials were made some years ago, soon followed by nanotube structures of these materials. It is, therefore, not surprising that one should be able to make graphene 39 40 1 Synthesis, Characterization, and Selected Properties of Graphene analogs of such layered materials. During the past year, graphene-like structures of MoS2 , WS2 , MoSe2 , WSe2 , BN, and other materials have indeed been prepared and characterized.

Conducting films of graphene for solar cell applications can also be prepared by a bottom-up approach [150]. Polymer photovoltaic cells based on solution-processible graphene are reported [151]. Because of its unique electronic structure, graphene shows useful photonic properties such as absorption of significant fraction of incident white light [6] and strong, tunable interband transitions [152]. 5 eV, absorbance of graphene is additive resulting in strong graphene–light interactions. This has made possible fabrication of FETs for ultrafast photodetection [153].
