Brief review of developments in graphene, PVA and future opportunity for PVA- graphene composite


Author(s): Priya, Saxena Rakesh and Singh VK

Abstract: Graphene due to its unique properties and versatile nature has emerged as the most likable material among the new nanostructured carbonaceous species. Graphene due to its properties like light weight, electrical conductivity, mechanical robustness, large surface area can be explored in numerous applications in the engineering and scientific field. Graphene is many times stronger compared to same mass of steel thereby has provided us with light weight and yet strong alternative compared to other conventional materials that are presently in use. This review work aims to present a brief overview of the main characteristics of graphene and most recent advances made in application of graphene and graphene related materials in electronic and optoelectronic devices, chemical sensors, nanocomposites, and energy storage devices. We have also reviewed the progress in the field of graphene functionalization, various synthesis processes for graphene and its future perspective. The work also states brief introduction of properties of PVA and its crosslinking processes and agents used for crosslinking with their applications ine various fields. The article concludes with a brief discussion on limitations and future prospects of graphene, PVA and the future of PVA based composite reinforced with functionalized graphene in today’s rapidly emerging material science field.
