Abstract

In this work we report on the development of an eco-friendly method for the chemical exfoliation of graphite in order to produce high-quality graphene for sensing applications. A mixture of low-boiling-point solvents, such as 1-butanol and 2-propanol, was employed for this purpose. The resulting colloidal suspension was a stable dispersion of few-layer flakes. This material was employed to fabricate chemiresistor devices that showed a remarkable variation of conductance when exposed to 350 ppb of NO2. © 2014 Springer International Publishing Switzerland.
