Pristine Graphene – polyHIPEs

Utilizing a monomer as the oil phase in the solvent interfacial trapping method allows for the formation of polymerized high-internal phase emulsions, or polyHIPEs. These materials have variability in the monomer used, changing the final properties of the composite material. But, the materials are low-density, electrically conductive, and mechanically robust.
