Hollow Graphene Spheres

Layer-by-layer deposition over a polystyrene bead template leads to a new type of graphene structure
Department: Science & Technology
Keywords: graphene, graphene oxide, layer-by-layer deposition

Broadening the range of structures that can be prepared from graphene, researchers in South Korea have developed a layer-by-layer deposition method for forming hollow graphene spheres (J. Phys. Chem. Lett., DOI: 10.1021/jz101441a). The demonstration suggests alternative ways to prepare graphene structures and may lead to applications in areas such as drug delivery and catalysis.
