Pristine Graphene – Conductive Transparent Films

Sonicating graphite in a water/heptane mixture results in the exfoliated graphene sheets pinned at the interface between the two solvents. This interface also exists at the surface of hydrophilic materials such as glass when in a heptane atmosphere, resulting in the graphene climbing the walls of the vial. Transparent, conductive films of graphene can be produced by this method, with film thickness not more than four sheets thick.
