Light-Initiated Hydrogenation of Graphene is Low Cost, Efficient

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
UPPSALA and GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Nov. 4, 2016 — A study has demonstrated that graphene reacts with formic acid in a water solution upon irradiation of visible light. During the reaction, formic acid acts as masked hydrogen and a material is produced, adding extensive amounts of hydrogen to the graphene. Additionally, it was found that the irradiation of aromatic compounds such as formic acid and benzene caused the compounds to reach electronically excited states. Aromatic chemical compounds have an inherently high stability and often they are not easy to degrade. However, the high stability of aromatic compounds (explained by...Read full article
