Time to take this seriously.
Graphite's insolubility in conventional solvents is a major obstacle to its utilization. This challenge is typically addressed by chemical modification such as oxidation, followed by reduction. However, pristine graphene possesses superior properties as oxidation and reduction lead to degradation of the graphene. Here we demonstrate the use of an interfacial trapping technique to assemble laterally macroscopic films of pristine graphene that are up to 95% transparent. This is accomplished by modest sonication of natural flake graphite in a water/heptane mixture to form continuous films at the interface between two immiscible liquids. Furthermore, the graphene sheets readily climb hydrophilic solid substrates, forming a homogeneous thin film one to four layers thick. These films are composed of a network of overlapping graphene sheets and shown to have long-range structure with conductivities on the order of 400 S/cm.
