Brief description This project aims to experimentally convert layers of graphene into diamond-like thin films via novel chemical hydrogenation and fluorination approaches. Unconventional diamond-like thin films that possess remarkable physicochemical properties will be produced to trigger significant theoretical and technological interests in nano-carbon research. The project expects to impact the fundamental understanding of this new class of graphene-derived materials whilst driving cutting-edge technological advances in electrochemical applications, membrane technologies and quantum computing.
