Abstract: Multi-layer graphene and graphite nanofiakes were produced through graphite liquid exfoliation using organic solvents. The nanoflakes size distribution was statistically analyzed, with the number of measured samples being high enough (from similar to 200 to 900) for reliable evaluation of the statistical model. The nanofiakes size data were found to follow a log-normal distribution, with higher fraction of large size flakes as compared to a conventional normal distribution. The same kind of distribution was also obtained for nanofiakes thickness. Based on these findings, the detailed mechanism of the pristine polycrystalline graphite exfoliation in a liquid phase due to formation and collapse of cavitation bubbles was discussed. The high quality of nanoflakes was confirmed by Raman spectroscopy. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
