Pristine Graphene – Sponges

Freezing graphene suspensions, followed by the sublimation of the solvent, can lead to graphene “sponges”: house of cards like morphology of graphene sheets. This material is composed of pristine, conductive graphene, with applications as in electronics and as a source of exfoliated graphene for composites.
