Fluorinated Graphene Nanoplatelets: GF-6 is first of a new line of halogenated graphene materials. Fluorinated graphene is a novel graphene derivative. The formation of covalent C-F bonds is accompanied by sp2 to sp3 structural transition of C-C bonds. This results in improved surface activity as well as processability of GNPs. Unlike graphene, GF-6 displays better dispersibility in polar solvents such as DMA, THF, etc. Depending on the F/C ratio, the material exhibits a range from metallic to semiconducting to insulating electronic behavior. GF-6 contains 6 at. % of fluorine and comprised of an average of 37 graphene layers. Our material can be utilized in various applications such as batteries, nanocomposites, epoxies, etc.
Fluorinated graphene is considered as one of important ultrathin solid lubricants or lubricant additive of lubricating oils, lubricating coatings and anti-wear composites because of its low friction coefficient and high durability.
