A new way to fabricate nanographene could benefit solar cells, fuel cells and LEDs

University of Tokyo researchers have designed a simple way to gain precise control over the fabrication of nanographene. In the process, they have also managed to shed light on the previously unclear chemical processes involved in nanographene production.

The team explains that it refers to units of graphene as nanographene; these are tailored to specific functions and as such their fabrication process is more complicated than that of generic graphene. Nanographene is made by selectively removing hydrogen atoms from organic molecules of carbon and hydrogen, a process called dehydrogenation.
