General description

Graphite platelet nanofibers (GNFs) belong to the class of carbonaceous materials. They exhibit a high surface to volume ratio with good thermal properties. GNFs can be used as phase-changing materials (PCMs) for effective energy and thermal storage.


GNFs can be used for a variety of sustainable applications such as supercapacitors, biosensors, fuel cells, gas sensors, and smart composite materials.

Preparation Note

Produced by Catalytic Chemical Vapor Deposition (CCVD).
