Caption: This graphic by Rice researchers shows graphene growth via open-pentagon armchair edges, with atoms joining one by one to form the material's familiar hexagonal lattice. The researchers analyzed the energies involved in graphene creation in a study that may help experimentalists grow better-quality graphene via chemical vapor deposition.
