Enabling graphene-based technology via chemical functionalization

While the physics of graphene has been thoroughly explored, chemical functionalization of graphene has proven to be elusive. Now researchers at Northwestern University have identified conditions for chemically functionalizing graphene with the organic semiconductor perylene-3,4,9,10-tetracarboxylic-dianhydride (PTCDA).
