Address correspondence to Hui-Ming Cheng,; Wencai Ren,

Narrow and long graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) can be fabricated in high yield by sonochemically cutting chemically derived graphene sheets (GSs). A chemical tailoring mechanism involving oxygen-unzipping of GSs under sonochemical conditions is proposed on the basis of experimental observations and previously reported theoretical calculations, and it is suggested that the formation and distribution of line faults on graphite oxide and GSs play important roles in the formation of GNRs.

Address correspondence to

Large-scale quasi-continuum simulations indicate that multi-walled carbon nanotubes under uniaxial compression show evolving post- buckling morphologies, ranging from asymmetric periodic rippling to helical diamond patterns. We attribute such morphological evolution to the coordinated buckling of the constituent shells.
