Functionalized graphene

Christopher F. Blanford (Inventor), Mirja Wehner (Inventor), Sabine Flitsch (Inventor)

Research output: Patent


Graphene is chemically modified by a process resulting in the introduction of functional groups located only at an edge of the graphene plane. The functionalised graphene finds uses in numerous applications and further chemical synthesis, including a process for coupling an organic or inorganic moiety to the graphene plane via the edge-located functional group. The disclosed products and processes provide highly flexible platforms for the integration of graphene into a variety of applications.
