Graphene to graphane by chemical conversion

Abstract:
An international research team have successfully converted graphene - sheets of carbon just a single layer of atoms thick - into its hydrogenated equivalent, graphane. The scientists, from the UK, Russia, and the Netherlands, say that graphane's electronic insulating properties complement graphene's conductivity, boosting the prospects of graphene-based nanoelectronics and hydrogen-fuel technologies.

The work is the first to shows that a chemical approach can be used to tailor the properties of a nano-material like graphene, in order to tune it to a particular application, says Andre Geim, part of the team at the University of Manchester. The team used a stream of hydrogen atoms to reversibly convert graphene into graphane.
