Abstract

In this study the formation of Graphite intercalated compounds (GICs) with iron (III) chloride compound in various solvents using multiple methods was studied. Iron (III) chloride hexahydrate (FeCl3-6H20) and anhydrous iron (III) chloride (FeCl3) were used to intercalate graphite powder. Detergents containing dodecylbenzenesulphonate (C12H25C6H4SO3) was reacted with the iron (III) chloride in order to intercalate a large molecule in-between the layers of graphite. Exfoliation was conducted on samples to encourage the production of monolayer graphene sheets.
