Carbon Nanosheets for Polymeric Nanocomposites with High Thermal Conductivity

Authors


Abstract

Nanometer-thick 2D carbon structures (“carbon nanosheets”) are processed from commercially available expanded graphite. These carbon nanosheets are then incorporated in various polymers to produce flexible nanocomposites that exhibit record-setting anisotropic thermal conductivities, which may prove highly valuable in many technological applications.
