Wu C, Huang X, Wu X, Qian R, Jiang P. Mechanically Flexible and Multifunctional Polymer-Based Graphene Foams for Elastic Conductors and Oil-Water Separators. Adv Mater Weinheim. 2013;.
We present a novel strategy for the fabrication of ordered and flexible polymer-based graphene foams by self-assembly of graphene sheets on a 3D polymer skeleton. The obtained graphene foams show excellent mechanical, electrical, and hydrophobic properties, thus holding great potential as elastic conductors and oil-water separators.
