Graphene is well-known for its remarkable electronic, mechanical and thermal properties, but industrial production of high-quality graphene is very challenging. A research team at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft, The Netherlands) has now developed a mathematical model that can be used to guide the large-scale production of these ultrathin layers of carbon. The findings were published this week in The Journal of Chemical Physics.

"Our model is the first to give a detailed view of what happens at the micro and nanoscale when is produced from plain graphite using energetic fluid mixing," says Dr. Lorenzo Botto, researcher at the department of Process & Energy at TU Delft. "The model will help the design of large-scale production processes, paving the way for graphene to be incorporated in commercial applications from energy storage devices to biomedicine."
