Electrospray method expands range of different graphene ribbons
Researchers from the SNI network have accessed various graphene nanoribbons using high-vacuum electrospray deposition.
They succeeded in investigating longer graphene nanoribbons with properties that are difficult or impossible to achieve with surface synthesis. For example, various temperature-sensitive functional groups can be integrated in solution, or twisted graphene ribbons can be produced. The high-vacuum electrospray method also allows the deposition of graphene on substrates that were previously unavailable for on-surface synthesis.
