Novel Method of Exfoliation Results in Higher Quality Monolayer Flakes

The journal Nature Communications-published study has unveiled that a group of researchers from the National University of Singapore has come up with a method by which higher yielding and larger monolayer flakes can be formed in comparison to the current method.

The chemists through the new method can chemically exfoliate molybdenum disulfide crystals in to the good quality monolayer flakes. It has been found that the novel method-produced flakes can be used to made printable solution.
