Summary of "Chemically exfoliated highly conductive layer-tunable graphene by simply controlling the exfoliating temperature."

The development of effective strategies for the massive production of layer-number tunable graphene is of great importance to satisfy the requirements in versatile applications such as energy storage, thermal management, photocatalysis. However, how to prepare the layer-tunable graphene by a simple and efficient way is still facing great challenge. Herein, an attempt has been made to exfoliate graphite into layer-tunable graphene by simply soaking the graphite in a binary-component solution composed of H2SO4 and (NH4)2S2O8. In this one-step method, we demonstrate that the layer-number for the as-prepared graphene can be significantly reduced by increasing the exfoliating temperature. An average thickness of ~20, ~10, and ~3 atomic layers can be obtained for the graphene samples exfoliated at the temperature of 30℃, 60℃, and 90℃, respectively. Meanwhile, higher exfoliating temperature not only facilitates the higher efficiency in the exfoliation of graphite, but also achieve a superior conductivity for the prepared graphene. We have demonstrated for the first time that controlling in a sole factor of temperature can effectively tune the layer-number of graphene by a one-step chemical exfoliation method, which will find its great potential in the practical application where the designated property of graphene is required.

The external, nonvascular layer of the skin. It is made up, from within outward, of five layers of EPITHELIUM: (1) basal layer (stratum basale epidermidis); (2) spinous layer (stratum spinosum epidermidis); (3) granular layer (stratum granulosum epidermidis); (4) clear layer (stratum lucidum epidermidis); and (5) horny layer (stratum corneum epidermidis).

Synthetic material used for the treatment of burns and other conditions involving large-scale loss of skin. It often consists of an outer (epidermal) layer of silicone and an inner (dermal) layer of collagen and chondroitin 6-sulfate. The dermal layer elicits new growth and vascular invasion and the outer layer is later removed and replaced by a graft.
