Address correspondence to

The controlled etching of graphite and graphene by catalytic hydrogenation is potentially a key engineering route for the fabrication of graphene nanoribbons with atomic precision. In this study we exploit the benefits of aberrationcorrected high-resolution transmission electron microscopy to gain insight to the hydrogenation reaction as well as to identify the etching directions at the atomic scale.

Address correspondence to

Monolayer and bilayer graphene sheets have been produced by a solvothermal-assisted exfoliation process in the presence of a highly polar organic solvent,acetonitrile, with yields of graphene of up to 10 wt%-12 wt%; electron diffraction and Raman spectroscopy indicated that the resulting graphene is high quality without any signifi cant structural defects.
