Characterization of graphene materials for various applications (Covalent Metrology expertise).

Graphene has arguably the largest surface area to volume ratio among novel 2D crystalline layered materials. Being spread as an atom-thick layer of hexagonal ring-bound carbon atoms, all atoms in a graphene sheet are surface exposed. This gives graphene a rich array of unique surface physical, chemical, and electronic properties that continue to open doors for new applications in nanotechnology and energy.

This note describes the use of gas sorption (porosimetry) for the characterization of the texture and pore structure of graphene.
