Coronene suggested as a useful method to study graphene oxide

Researchers from Brazil suggest a new way to study the changes generated by oxygenated groups in Graphene Oxide using Coronene as a model molecule.

The researcher ran several experiments and measurements on a series of functionalized coronene molecules, and say that these results provide useful data for the analysis of IR and Raman spectra of GO. The researcher say that the Coronene could provide a useful model to study GO features.

Last year it was reported that Coronene can be used as nucleation seeds for graphene synthesis using a low temperature CVD process - which greatly improves the homogeneity of the monolayer graphene.

Coronene is now offered in high quality (97% purity) and relatively low cost online at The Graphene Supermarket.
