The different exfoliation routes of graphite to produce graphene by sonication in solvent, chemical oxidation, and electrochemical oxidation are compared. The results obtained show the trade-off between exfoliation speed and preservation of graphene quality. A key step to achieve efficient exfoliation is to couple gas production and mechanical exfoliation on a macroscale with non-covalent exfoliation and preservation of graphene properties on a molecular scale.
