"Poly-Aromatic Hydrocarbon Nanostructure Growth on Single- and Multi-Layer Graphene"

by Alexander Yulaev

Friday, February 20, 2015 -- 12:00 p.m.
Large Conference Room, 1207 Energy Research Facility

Advisor:  Assistant Professor Marina Leite

Poly-aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are known as potential hazardous organic pollutants, which can be found in soil, air, meat, fish, etc. Graphene has an ultrahigh surface area and can be seen, therefore, as an "ultimate carbon filter." We report PAH nanostructure nucleation and growth on a single- and multi-layer graphene CVD grown on a copper substrate.
