Toward high production of graphene flakes – A review on recent developments in their synthesis methods and scalability

Abstract

Research and development in graphene synthesis have been rapidly growing the past few years because of their extraordinary physical, mechanical, thermal, electrical and optical properties. Graphene flakes, one of the most popular form of graphene, can be used for many applications such as conductive inks, nanofluids, supercapacitors, composites etc. Synthesis of graphene flakes is indeed in the path to reach the large-scale production even if cost of production and efficiency are required to be further improved. This review sheds light on the recent advancements of graphene flake synthesis and it gives a comprehensive analysis of the synthesis methods. Keys for further improvements are proposed based on the mechanisms involved in the graphene flake formation.
