Presentation Summary

Among a variety of techniques currently employed, solvent exfoliation and oxidization (with subsequent reduction) of graphite are the two main methods for graphene nanoplatelet synthesis. While these methods have improved greatly over the past few years, they still do not provide a reliable way for high-quality graphene production on a large scale. Dr Anna Mieczakowski from FGV Cambridge Nanosystems will present a novel, green and cost-effective method for catalyst-free, continuous, large scale production of graphene from a gaseous hydrocarbon feedstock in our proprietary microwave plasma reactor system.

Company Profile (Cambridge Nanosystems)

Cambridge Nanosystems logo
Cambridge Nanosystems is a UK-based start-up born out of Cambridge University that specialises in advanced materials.
Our graphene innovation:
We have developed a ground-breaking new method of producing ultra-high-quality, impurity-free graphene in high volumes for the very first time. Our process is based on the bottom up, molecular assembly of graphene sheets, using natural gas as carbon precursor and without the need of a catalyst. The innovative production method enables the commercial scale production of these multi-functional, high-performance materials.
