Methods of Graphite Exfoliation and Recent Progress

2021 Turkish journal of chemistry  
The synthesis of Graphene is critical to achieving its functions in practical 13 applications. Different methods have been used to synthesis graphene, but graphite 14 exfoliation is considered the simplest way to produce graphene and graphene oxide. In 15 general, controlling the synthesis conditions to achieving the optimum yield, keeping 16 the pristine structure to realize on-demand properties, minimum layers with the smallest 17 lateral size, and minimum oxygen content are the most

Each application requires a specific Graphene model, graphene oxides GO, 19 or even Graphene intercalated compounds (GIC) depending on synthesis conditions and 20 approach. This paper reviewed and summarized the most researches in this field and 21 focusing on exfoliation methods. 22 23
