New study introduces the best graphite films

High-quality graphite has excellent mechanical strength, thermal stability, high flexibility and very high in-plane thermal and electric conductivities and, thus, is one of most important advanced materials for many applications, such as being used as the light thermal conductor of cell phones. For example, a specific type of graphite, Highly Ordered Pyrolytic Graphite (HOPG), is…

Experimental and theoretical study of the effect of different functionalities

In this work, a set of functional monomers, namely, acrylamide (Am), 2-aminoethyl methacrylate hydrochloride (AEMH), 4-bromostyrene (BS), 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA), glycidyl methacrylate (GMA), methyl 2-chloro acrylate (MClA), and sodium 4-vinylbenzenesulfonate (NaSS), see Fig. 1, have been computationally studied in the pursuit of new materials to improve the CO2 adsorption capacity of GO/polymer composites. To this end,…
