Catalyst-free plasma enhanced growth of graphene from sustainable sources
Jacob, Mohan V., Rawat, Rajdeep S., Ouyang, Bo, Bazaka, Kateryna, Kumar, D. Sakthi, Taguchi, Dai, Iwamoto, Mitsumasa, Neupane, Ram, & Varghese, Oomman K. (2015) Catalyst-free plasma enhanced growth of graphene from sustainable sources. Nano Letters, 15(9), pp. 5702-5708.
Details of a fast and sustainable bottom-up process to grow large area high quality graphene films without the aid of any catalyst are reported in this paper. We used Melaleuca alternifolia, a volatile natural extract from tea tree plant as the precursor. The as-fabricated graphene films yielded a stable contact angle of 135°, indicating their potential application in very high hydrophobic coatings. The electronic devices formed by sandwiching pentacene between graphene and aluminum films demonstrated memristive behavior, and hence, these graphene films could find use in nonvolatile memory devices also.
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.
