      Dustin K. James and James M. Tour

      Article first published online: 30 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/macp.201200001

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Review: Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) can be produced using a variety of chemical methods. The solution-based chemical synthesis of GNRs through oxidation or reduction of multi-walled carbon nanotubes using protocols developed in the Tour group is reviewed, giving the reader an overview that benefits from the hindsight of several years of research in the group.

      Jinhong Du and Hui-Ming Cheng

      Article first published online: 7 MAY 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/macp.201200029

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Review: The recent development in the fabrication, properties, applications and fundamental challenges of graphene/polymer composites is reviewed. Graphene/polymer composites are promising multifunctional materials with significantly improved mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties and may have wide potential applications.

    2. Block Copolymer Templating as a Path to Porous Nanostructured Carbons with Highly Accessible Nitrogens for Enhanced (Electro)chemical Performance (pages 1078–1090)

      John P. McGann, Mingjiang Zhong, Eun Kyung Kim, Sittichai Natesakhawat, Mietek Jaroniec, Jay F. Whitacre, Krzysztof Matyjaszewski and Tomasz Kowalewski

      Article first published online: 8 MAY 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/macp.201100691

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Review: The advantages of polyacrylonitrile as a nitrogen-rich carbon source for electrochemical systems can be highlighted through the use of proper templating. Its incorporation into a block copolymer template, containing a second sacrificial block, leads to a mesoporous carbon material comprised of nanographitic domains with nitrogen-rich edges exposed to the pore walls.

    3. Towards Rationally Designed Graphene-Based Materials and Devices (pages 1091–1100)

      Yu Teng Liang and Mark C. Hersam

      Article first published online: 13 MAR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/macp.201100572

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Review: Recent developments in chemical processing have enabled the efficient production of micrometer- and nanometer- sized graphene sheets in the solution phase. This review details recent advances in the understanding of the defect structure and properties of graphene derived from the most common synthetic pathways. Strategies are presented for graphene chemical selection and modification that facilitates its use in functional materials and devices.

    1. Functionalization of Graphene Oxide by Two-Step Alkylation (pages 1101–1106)

      Yi Huang, Weibo Yan, Yanfei Xu, Lu Huang and Yongsheng Chen

      Article first published online: 17 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/macp.201100658

      Full Paper: We report a new method for functionalization of GO, which uses n-butyllium (n-BuLi) to attack the GO sheets, following by a coupling reaction with alkyl bromide. Such chemical treatment dramatically alters the dispersion behavior of GO sheets in organic non-polar solvent.

    1. Chemical Synthesis of Carbon Materials With Intriguing Nanostructure and Morphology (pages 1107–1131)

      An-Hui Lu, Guang-Ping Hao, Qiang Sun, Xiang-Qian Zhang and Wen-Cui Li

      Article first published online: 27 MAR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/macp.201100606

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Review: Carbon materials show very intriguing nanostructure and morphology, and thus widely used in applications such as energy storage and conversion, catalysis, and so on. This review discusses the recent development of carbon materials in form of 0D quantum dots and spheres; 1D fibers, tubes, and wires; 2D films and membranes; and 3D monolithic structure (see figure), focusing on their solution-based synthesis and further functionalization.

    2. Functional Carbon Materials From Ionic Liquid Precursors (pages 1132–1145)

      Jens Peter Paraknowitsch and Arne Thomas

      Article first published online: 14 MAR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/macp.201100573

      Review: ILs are suitable carbon precursors. By choosing appropriate anion/cation combinations, the nanostructure, morphology, and the amount of heteroatoms in the final carbon materials can be controlled. Also carbon composites are easily prepared by this approach. Applications of the resulting carbon materials in batteries, supercapacitors, and fuel cells have been suggested.

    3. Novel Radiation-Induced Properties of Graphene and Related Materials (pages 1146–1163)

      Prashant Kumar, Barun Das, Basant Chitara, K. S. Subrahmanyam, K. Gopalakrishnan, S. B. Krupanidhi and C. N. R. Rao

      Article first published online: 5 MAR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/macp.201100451

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Review: Dispersion of graphene oxide (GO) can be reduced to produce reduced graphene oxide (RGO) upon irradiation with different sources such as laser, UV light, or sunlight. This irradiation-induced transformation is further employed for pattering applications and also to achieve blue light. Moreover, RGO seems to be a potential candidate for detecting infrared as well as UV light.

    4. Supramolecular Synthesis of Graphenic Mesogenic Materials (pages 1164–1174)

      Fei Guo and Robert Hurt

      Article first published online: 27 MAR 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/macp.201100600

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      Review: Supramolecular chemistry offers new routes to carbon and graphene-based materials with precise control of structure. A subset of that field uses liquid crystal phases to direct molecular orientation for covalent capture into ordered carbon. This tutorial review describes the precursors, assembly modes, and emerging applications of these graphenic mesogenic materials.
