Mechanochemically driven solid-state Diels–Alder reaction of graphite into graphene nanoplatelets

Author affiliations

Abstract

A mechanochemically driven solid-state Diels–Alder reaction is demonstrated via dry ball-milling graphite as the diene in the presence of maleic anhydride or maleimide as the dienophile. On the basis of various characterizations, the Diels–Alder adducts are edge-selectively functionalized and subsequently delaminated into graphene nanoplatelets.
