Graphene Nanoplatelets are graphene nanoparticles composed of multilayer graphene sheets in a "platelet" morphology. The unique shape with a high aspect ratio of thinness to width give them excellent electrical and thermal conductivity and make them ideal for applications such as strengthening composites and matrix materials, serving as barriers. American Elements produces graphene nanoplatelets in multiple sizes and grades; they are also available in dispersion and as graphene nanoplatelet aggregates. Additional technical, research and safety (MSDS) information is available. American Elements can produce most materials in high purity and ultra high purity (up to 99.99999%) forms and follows applicable ASTM testing standards; a range of grades are available including Mil Spec (military grade), ACS, Reagent and Technical Grade, Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grade, Optical Grade, USP and EP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British Pharmacopoeia). We can also produce materials to custom specifications by request, in addition to custom compositions for commercial and research applications and new proprietary technologies. Typical and custom packaging is available, as is additional research, technical and safety (MSDS) data. Please contact us above for information on specifications, lead time and pricing.
Carbon is a Block P, Group 12, Period 2 element. The number of electrons in each of Carbon's shells is 2, 4 and its electron configuration is [He] 2s2 2p2. In its elemental form, carbon's CAS number is 7440-44-0. Carbon is at the same time one of the softest (graphite) and hardest (diamond) materials found in nature. It is the 15th most abundant element in the Earth's crust, and the fourth most abundant element (by mass) in the universe after hydrogen, helium, and oxygen. Carbon was discovered by the Egyptians and Sumerians circa 3750 BC. It was first recognized as an element by Antoine Lavoisierby in 1789. For more information on carbon, including properties, safety data, research, and American Elements' catalog of carbon products, visit the Carbon element page.
