About

GrapheneGraphene Nanoplatelets are flakes 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. Graphene samples are also available as nanoflakes on silicon or SiO2 substrate wafers.

Research and sample quantities and hygroscopic, oxidizing or other air sensitive materials may be packaged under argon or vacuum. Shipping documentation includes a Certificate of Analysis and Safety Data Sheet (SDS). Solutions are packaged in polypropylene, plastic or glass jars up to palletized 440 gallon liquid totes, and 36,000 lb. tanker trucks.

Related Products & Element Information

See more Carbon products. Carbon (atomic symbol: C, atomic number: 6) is a Block P, Group 14, Period 2 element. Carbon Bohr ModelThe 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.
