Carbon Nanostructure Synthesis from Carbon-Excess Explosives in Supercrital Fluid
This invention relates to the synthesis of carbon nanostructures such as graphene, fullerenes and nano-tubes, and more particular to the synthesis of such nanostructures from carbon-excess explosives in supercritical fluid. Background: Carbon nanostructures are synthesized from carbon-excess explosives having a negative oxygen balance. A supercritical...

Fabrication of Pillared Graphene
This invention is a method of fabricating pillared graphene. This is accomplished by first constraining a layer of fullerenes between graphene sheets (the proto structure). Tether molecules may be employed to help chemically bind the fullerenes to the graphene at attachment points. Energy is applied to the proto structure via chemical reaction, thermal...
