Vertical graphene gas- and bio-sensors via catalyst-free, reactive plasma reforming of natural honey
Seo, D.H., Rider, A.E., Kumar, S., Randeniya, L.K., & Ostrikov, K. (2013) Vertical graphene gas- and bio-sensors via catalyst-free, reactive plasma reforming of natural honey. Carbon, 60, pp. 221-228.
A rapid reforming of natural honey exposed to reactive low-temperature Ar + H2 plasmas produced high-quality, ultra-thin vertical graphenes, without any metal catalyst or external heating. This transformation is only possible in the plasma and fails in similar thermal processes. The process is energy-efficient, environmentally benign, and is much cheaper than common synthesis methods based on purified hydrocarbon precursors. The graphenes retain the essential minerals of natural honey, feature reactive open edges and reliable gas- and bio-sensing performance.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
