Anson Resources recently announced that single layered graphene has been produced from graphite flakes from the Company’s Ajana Graphite Project, located in Western Australia. The research work was carried out by Flinders University of South Australia.
The graphene was produced by exfoliating the Ajana graphite sample with a high energy surfactant system, and both single and multilayered graphene can be seen in the scanning electron microscope image. The graphene sheets range in size from 1 to 10 microns. High resolution transmission electron microscope (HRTEM) was used to show the pristine nature of the single layered graphene sheets.
