Graphene Decoupling (image) Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology(UNIST) Share Print E-Mail Caption The decoupling of a graphene nanoribbon, showing the chemical reactions of oxygen and water that led to the surface oxidation at the nanoribbon edge sites. The functionalized nanoribbon edges facilitate the molecular dissociation of oxygen and water that serve as the first stage of oxidation.
