Carbon allotropes such as graphene and carbon nanotubes are of great interest for applications due to their outstanding physical properties. We have developed a green, inexpensive technique to exfoliate graphite to obtain high quality graphene in liquid phase. This material is then used to build devices for improved actuators, thermoelectrics, bio and magnetic sensors.
The Nanomaterials lab is located at building Q, lab Q501. Universidad de los Andes in Bogota, Colombia.
