graphene exfoliation; sticky tape on a block of graphite

Making graphene

The sticky tape method that was used to first isolate graphene at The University of Manchester is still employed. However, this cannot be done on an industrial scale.

Other methods are used for large scale manufacturing such as chemical deposition, but research continues to be carried out to scale up new capabilities of producing larger quantities of graphene.

In this video, we explore the methods used to make graphene.
