Abstract: Helical-ribbon carbon nanofibers produced on an industrial scale were successfully converted in highly functionalized graphene nanoplatelets by using a slight modification of the Hummers oxidation method.The duration of the oxidative process severely affected the interlayer spacing in the resulting nanoplatelets and, consequently, they showed very different exfoliation behavior. Therefore, it was possible to obtain a variety of graphene-related products through their ultrasonication or thermal treatments such…
