21_43b/2009Expanded Graphite: One-Step Exfoliation Synthesis of Easily Soluble Graphite and Transparent Conducting Graphene Sheets (Adv. Mater. 43/2009)

The inside cover shows an SEM image of easily soluble expanded graphite (ESEG) on a Si substrate. In work by Ji-Beom Yoo and co-workers (p. 4383) the ESEG was prepared from a fluorinated graphite intercalation compound (FGIC)–C2F · nClF3. The inset scheme shows the fluorinated graphite intercalation compound. Due to the severe expansion state, the ESEG can be dispersed in organic solvents or even water by ultrasonication with common surfactants.
