Title: MANUFACTURE OF GRAPHENE MATERIALS USING A CAVITATION REACTOR
Abstract:
Devices, systems and methods for manufacturing graphene materials using a vortex reactor are disclosed. The vortex reactor is configured to receive a fluid mixture of two immiscible fluids. When directed into the reactor, the fluid mixture follows a vortical path that provides effective separation of the fluids and forms an interface between the fluids. Graphene flakes are generated through ultrasonic exfoliation of a graphite material, and the graphene flakes aggregate at the interface to form in a tube-shaped graphene sheet material.
