Abstract

Owing to its unique properties, graphene has attracted tremendous attention in many research fields. There is a great space to develop graphene synthesis techniques with an efficient and environmentally friendly approach. In this paper, we report a simple method to synthesize well-dispersed Multi-Layer Graphene (MLG). This was achieved by the electrochemical synthesis of the graphite sheets in a conditional water solution. The graphene dispersion was stable, and no evidence of aggregation was observed—even after several months. The characterization results show that well-dispersed MLG was successfully synthesized without any significant damage to the overall structure. The graphene obtained by this method has potential applications in composite materials, conductive coatings, energy storage, and electronic devices.
