The electrical properties of graphene
MetadataShow full item record
The electrical properties of graphene have proven to be better than many related compounds, such as carbon nanotubes because of its high surface area and electrical conductivity. These properties give graphene potential to enhance electronics, biosensors and potentially battery cells. Scientists are interested in further improving the electrical capabilities of graphene in order to widen its range of application. Wang, Y et al. experimented with n-type doping of graphene in order to intrinsically modify its structure in the hopes of improving its conductivity. Alternatively, Wang, D. et al. used graphene as a structural surface from which to construct a complex of titanium oxide crystals. Both groups used electrochemistry to study the results of their modifications. The outcome of these experiments suggests that graphene is a highly modifiable molecule and has the potential for a wide variety of applications in electrochemistry.
