Synthesis and properties of monolayer graphene oxyfluoride

Author affiliations


Covalent bond-forming reactions can be used to tailor the properties of graphene, aiming at electronic band structure engineering and surface functionalization. We present a novel and easy method for the production of chemically modified monolayer graphene based on the electrochemical intercalation of graphite, that could be used for adding various functional groups to the graphene lattice. Oxy-fluorinated graphene layers have been produced and fully characterized in terms of their chemical composition and functionalization. Moreover, Raman spectroscopy allows ready discrimination between monolayers and few-layers, and field-effect devices have been fabricated in order to study the transport properties of monolayer graphene oxyfluoride. Interesting conduction mechanisms such as two dimensional Mott variable range hopping and colossal negative magneto-resistance are observed, making this novel material suitable for both fundamental research and graphene-based applications.
