Researchers from Italy's Institute of Organic Synthesis and Photoreactivity (ISOF) developed a new way to analyze the production process of 2D materials (such as BN or graphene). The new suggested process can be used for process control of 2D and composite materials produced via exfoliation.

The researchers explain that today there are many different methods and production processes used to produce graphene. But it is difficult today to compare the quality of these materials. The new suggested method may help to better understand these different materials and standardize their quality.
