US and Korean Researchers Making pristine graphene in a microwave oven

Nanotechweb.org reports : Researchers at Rutgers University in the US and UNIST in Korea have succeeded in producing high-quality graphene by simply zapping graphene oxide with microwaves for 1–2 seconds. The new technique produces pristine graphene that has an electron mobility as high as 1500 cm2/V/s when made into field-effect transistors with graphene as the channel material. This is among the highest value ever obtained from reduced graphene oxide materials.
