Book Description :

Graphene is a marvelous structure that has an incredible mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties. However, graphene fails to retain its outstanding properties during agglomeration due to its enormous specific surface area. To solve this problem, an established functionalization coating technique whereby silane molecules are applied to the pristine graphene surface improves its dispersion and stability in a polymeric composite. In this thesis, functionalized graphene was incorporated with a carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite to improve its mechanical and viscoelastic properties. Successful integration of the 0.5 wt% silanized graphene in the CFRP composite leads to the improvement of ultimate tensile strength up to 58.41% from the base composite, with 8.44% improvement from the same amount of pristine graphene CFRP composite. In the evaluation of tensile strength, the 0.25 wt% and 1 wt% silanized graphene composites outperformed pristine graphene composites by 10.64% and 16.71%, respectively. Additionally, there was 7.35%, 9.97%, and 13.5% tensile modulus improvement in the 0.25 wt%, 0.5 wt%, and 1 wt% of silanized graphene, respectively, compared with pristine graphene composites. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) tests were used to characterize the graphene and silanized graphene, and C-scan was performed for the qualitative analysis of the manufactured CFRP nanocomposites. A further study using dynamic scanning calorimetry (DSC) and dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) confirmed a staggering glass transition temperature (Tg) shift of about 19.55oC for 0.25 wt% silanized graphene nanoinclusion. However, the highest amount (1 wt%) of graphene or silanized graphene degraded the mechanical strength but promisingly improved the viscoelastic characteristics of the CFRP composites. Therefore, the functionalized graphene proved to be a better candidate against pristine graphene in the development of graphene-filled CFRP nanocomposites.

Book Description :

The superior electron carrier mobility, thermal conductivity, and mechanical properties of graphene have led to the rapid development of graphene-based applications for high speed electronics, chemical and biological sensing, optoelectronics, energy storage and conversion. However, the incorporation of graphene into these applications requires the precise connection of individual sheets at the molecular level with other materials where chemical interaction is significant. In this regard, the chemical functionalization of graphene has played a critical role in facilitating the integration of graphene into useful "building-blocks" or functional components in these applications. The functionalization of graphene can alter its electronic band structure, doping, and affinity for other organic, inorganic, and biological materials. The site specific functionalization of graphene is essential to modify the region-specific surface properties to gain specific characteristics required for particular applications and to covalently/non-covalently link graphene sheets of different properties together into various graphene-based devices. Controlled chemical modification could be a very useful approach to various multifunctional systems critical to applications such as nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, nanosensors, and nanoenergy systems. We describe a simple and effective modification method for functionalizing the two opposite surfaces of individual graphene sheets with different nanoparticles in either a patterned or non-patterned fashion. The asymmetric and patterned functionalization of graphene sheets with each of their two opposite surfaces attached by ZnO and Au NPs can serve as a platform upon which to build high performance electronics and photonic devices. In addition, we develop a novel approach for multicomponent symmetrical patterning metal/metal oxide nanoparticles on graphene involving region-specific plasma treatment, followed by region-selective substrate-enhanced electro-less deposition of Au nanoparticles and solution alkalization formation of Fe3O4 nanoparticles. We demonstrated that metal and metal nanoparticle functionalized graphene can enhance the sensing capability and selectivity for vapors. A miniaturized gas sensor array based on graphene exhibiting great room-temperature sensing properties for various selective vapors and the potential for cost-effective graphene-based sensors was developed. These functionalization methods for spatial micro- and nanopatterning of graphene chemistry in both covalent and noncovalent functionalization schemes can be crucial for further the enhancement of graphene-based devices. Moreover, there is a pressing need to integrate graphene sheets into multidimensional and multifunctional systems with spatially well-defined configurations. The controlled assembly of graphene films still remains to be a challenge. Self-assembly has been recognized as an effective strategy for the bottom-up synthesis of 3D macrostructures using graphene sheets as building blocks. Here we report a novel, simplistic, and scalable methodology utilizing the Langmuir-Schaefer technique for the controlled transfer and assembly of graphene onto any substrate for hierarchical organization into large-scale multi-dimensional functional materials for diverse applications. This novel method of graphene assembly can lead to research and development of next generation of high performance materials and structures by providing a scientific rationale that will enable bold innovative concepts for engineered hybrid structures.

Book Description :

Abstract Polyimides are a commercially useful material, typically used in air and space applications due to high heat resistance, impressive mechanical strength, and self-extinguishing properties. In recent years, graphene has come of interest in the material science world. However, the pristine, carbon-honeycomb allotrope is extremely hydrophobic, chemically unreactive and it is therefore difficult, if not impossible, to disperse graphene nanoparticles as single nanosheets into polar solvents used typically used for polymerization and synthesis. Focus has shifted to graphene oxide (GO); the honeycomb structure of graphene with oxygen-containing functional groups on the surface. Incorporation of GO into polyimides is shown to improve mechanical properties, increase gas barrier properties and to increase water solvent resistance along with other solvents. Functionalization of GO sheets with monomer components of the chosen polymer results in further improvements of these properties. Here we demonstrate that tailoring of GO to be compatible with polyimide resins is a valuable technique in enhancing GO-polymer composite properties.

Book Description :

Chemical/biological sensors serve many purposes in protecting machinery, the environment, and human life/wellness. Graphene, a two-dimensional (2-D) material made up of carbon atoms in a honeycomb-like lattice, is promising for applications to chemical/biological sensing due to its unique properties. Functionalization of graphene by surface decorating with nanoparticles and increasing interior adsorption sites can tailor its catalytic activity and electrical properties, and hence, important for detecting and distinguishing trace hazardous gases.This research introduces two different approaches to functionalize graphene towards enhanced sensitivity and selectivity of graphene-based sensors. The morphologies, structures, and electrical properties of the functionalized graphene are systematically characterized. The first approach is to decorate graphene surface with gold and platinum nanoparticles using air-spraying technique. It is determined that the sheet resistance nearly linearly increased as the nanoparticle concentration on graphene increased. Both metals resulted in the increase in sheet resistance due to reduction of charge carriers. The resulted difference in electrical properties can be utilized to tune graphene sensing capabilities. The second approach is to modify graphene via oxygen doping or partial oxidation under oxygen plasma or thermal treatment. Evolution of structure and changes of electrical properties at microwave frequencies were qualitatively analyzed. The width of electrically inactive layer near micro-pattered graphene resulting from oxygen plasma etching is determined with the help Raman spectroscopy and scanning microwave microscopy (SMM.) The effects of annealing temperature on structural and electrical parameters are also analyzed. It is found that graphene annealed at and above 350°C shows distinct structural and electrical changes, which is not suitable for sensor recovery. These two insightful observations will provide critical guidance for processing optimization and recovery control of graphene-based sensors.
