Novel nanoprocessing route for bulk graphene nanoplatelets reinforced metal matrix nanocomposites Academic Article uri icon


  • It is extremely difficult to effectively incorporate and disperse graphene nanoplatelets into metal matrix by traditional processing methods. In this paper, a novel nanoprocessing method that combines liquid state ultrasonic processing and solid state stirring is presented for fabrication of bulk metal-graphene nanoplatelets nanocomposites. The obtained graphene nanoplatelets reinforced Mg-based metal matrix nanocomposite shows a uniform dispersion of graphene nanoplatelets and dramatically enhanced properties. This novel nanoprocessing route has great potential for the production of ultrahigh performance metal matrix nanocomposites. © 2012 Acta Materialia Inc. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
