A general review on the synthesis, characterization, properties, and applications of graphene is given by Singh et al. .It describes a detailed overview of the synthesis of graphene by mechanical exfoliation of graphite, chemical vapor deposition (CVD), and chemical approaches.
1. Introduction. Graphite-like nanoplatelets have recently attracted attention as a viable and inexpensive filler in composite materials,, that can be used in many engineering applications, given the excellent in-plane mechanical, structural, thermal, and electrical properties of graphite .
Metallurgy. The graphite in compacted graphite iron differs in structure from that in gray iron because the graphite particles are shorter and thicker.. Applications. The first commercial application for compacted graphite iron was for the brake discs for high-speed rail trains.
Particles 2013 is an international conference examining the science, technology, and business aspects of particle-based composites ranging from applied surface modification chemistries to applications of particle technology in composites and related advanced materials.
XG Sciences, Inc., formed in May 2006, is a pioneer and market leader in the design and manufacture of graphene nanoplatelets. Graphene nanoplatelets are particles consisting of multiple layers of graphene and are considered a game changer for numerous industries.
