    It is demonstrated from stress-induced Raman bands shifts that stress can be transferred from a polymer matrix to a graphene monolayer (see image) in a model nanocomposite. It is shown further that the behavior can be modeled using continuum mechanics and that the interface between the graphene and the polymer breaks down at a shear stress of the order of 2 MPa.
