The present invention relates to a technology for graphene, which find their application in various industries.

From the scientific and patent literature there are many different ways to obtain graphene.

There is a method of producing graphene by mechanical exfoliation, which with the help of adhesive tape from graphite tear layer graphene, while having a relatively large samples of graphene size ~10 μm, suitable for electrical and optical measurements. After peeling the adhesive tape with a thin film of graphite and graphene pressed against the substrate oxidized silicon. In this way it is difficult to obtain a film of a certain size and shape in fixed parts of the substrate (horizontal sizes of the films are usually about 10 μm) (Novoselov .S. et al. "Electric Field Effect in Atomically Thin Carbon Films", Science v.306, p.666, 2004; J. S. Bunch et. al. "Electromechanical Resonators from Graphene Sheets". Science, v. 315, p.490, 2007).

The described method of producing graphene, which consists in the fact that the oxidized silicon substrate covered with epoxy glue (I used a glue layer thickness of ~10 µm) and thin plate of graphite press to glue with the help of the press. After removal of the graphite plate with a piece of adhesive tape on the surface remain the region with graphene and graphite (E. Rollings et. al. "Synthesis and characterization of atomically thin graphite films on a silicon carbide substrate" J. Phys. Chem. Solids, v. 67, p.2172, 2006; J. Has et. al. Highly ordered graphene for two dimensional electronics Appl. Phys. Lett. v.89, p.143106, 2006).

U.S. patent No. 8,287,699 (IPC B01J 19/10, 2012) a secure method of obtaining nanographene materials by dispersion in a liquid medium graphite material with subsequent treatment of the suspension with ultrasound of high intensity and duration, while the plates are formed of graphene.

The article (Novoselov .S. et al. "Two-dimensional gas of massless Dirac fermions in graphene", Nature v.438, p.197, 2005) describes a method of printing graphene electrical circuits. The printing process consists of sequential transfer from the substrate Si/SiO2gold contacts, graphene and, finally, a dielectric polymethylmethacrylate (emission spectra obtained for pure) with a metal gate on a transparent substrate made of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), pre-heated above the temperature of its softening to 170°C, so the contacts are pressed into the PET, and graphene gets good contact with the substrate material. This method is suitable for application of graphene on any substrate that is suitable, in particular, for optical measurements.

In the works (Zhang Y. et. al. "Experimental observation of the quantum Hall effect and Berry''s phase in graphene" Nature, v. 438, p.201, 2005; Sandip Niyogi, Elena Bekyarova et al. "Solution Properties of Graphite and Graphene" J. Am. Chem. Soc.; 2006; 128(24) pp 7720; (Communication); Bunch J.S. et al. "Coulomb Oscillations and Hall Effect in Quasi-2D Graphite Quantum Dots" Nano Lett. 5, 287, 2005) describes chemical methods to obtain graphene, which distinguish the I large percentage yield of the material, but the small size of the films is ~10-100 nm. The microcrystals of graphite exposed to a mixture of sulfuric and hydrochloric acids. Graphite is oxidized, and at the edges of the sample appear carboxyl groups of the graphene. Turn into chlorides using thionyl chloride. Then under the action of octadecylamine in solutions of tetrahydrofuran, carbon tetrachloride and dichloroethane they move in graphene layers with a thickness of 0.54 nm. Known RF plasma-chemical method for the deposition of graphene from the gas phase (Wang J.J. et. al. "Free-standing subnanometer graphite sheets" Appl. Phys. Lett, v.85, p.1265 (2004) and the method of growing films of graphene at high pressure and temperature (Parvizi F., et. al. "Graphene Synthesis via the High Pressure - High Temperature Growth Process" Micro Nano Lett., v.3, p.29, 2008).

In patents (US No. 2012/0082787, IPC B05D 3/02, C23C 16/28, 2012 and US No. 8,227,069, IPC B32B 3/00, B32B 5/00, 2012) describes the obtaining of graphene grown on substrates of silicon carbide SiC. Graphite film is formed by thermal decomposition of the surface of the SiC substrate at temperatures up to 1350°C in a vacuum of 1-10-4mm Hg or in a current of inert gas.

As follows from the analysis of scientific literature and patent data described methods for producing graphene technologically quite complex, high labour intensity, the area of the formed particles of graphene is small and is measured in square microns.

The task of the invention is the development of new STRs is both produce graphene structures providing education graphene particles with the surface to 5 mm2, a large output and allows you to produce graphene in large quantities (up to 50 g/day on the installation volume of the Cabinet-reactor 10 l).

The problem is solved by the fact that developed a new method to produce graphene structures in the form of a flat carbon particles with the surface to 5 mm2consists in the fact that graphene is produced by combustion of composite moulding material obtained from powders of fluoropolymers, such as polytetrafluoroethylene and a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and vinylidenefluoride, and micro - and nano-powders of active metals such as aluminum, titanium, zirconium, nanosized powders of silicon and aluminum borides with a ratio of metal : fluoropolymer = 10-35 : 90-65%.

During the research work it was found that interaction of nano-dispersed powder aluminum with Teflon along with aluminum TRIFLUORIDE is formed flat flakes of carbon from the surface to 5 mm2.

When ignited stoichiometric powder mixture of nanosized aluminum and copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and vinylidenefluoride the flame of a gas burner, instant ignition and combustion of the mixture, followed by C is the uke cotton and the formation of smoke, fine particles of carbon.

When ignited extruded composite gas burner with blowing air (flame temperature of about 900-1000°C) for two to three seconds starts turbulent combustion with combustion of the sample within 2-4 C. this produces a large number of flat large flocculent particles of soot that are easy glomerida. In addition, the observed and the formation of filamentous and elongated funnel of soot formation in length up to 5 mm

Like this reaction proceeds in an atmosphere of argon when ignited extruded composite is heated nichrome wire with education such as flat particles.

Investigation of planar carbon particles by scanning electron microscopy and x-ray diffractometry showed that they consist of two-dimensional structures, typical for graphene (hexagonal crystalline phase, the maximum x-ray at 2Θ=20,61°).

Similar to the formation of graphene obtained by interaction of composite materials on the basis of micron and nano-sized powders of active metals such as aluminum, titanium, zirconium, nanosized powders of silicon and aluminum borides and fluoropolymers such as polytetrafluoroethylene and a copolymer of tetrafluoroethylene and vinylidenefluoride.

The composites obtained by mixing powders of metals and fluoropolymers with a ratio of metal : fluorine is OLIMAR = 10-35 : 90-65%, followed by compressing the mixture in the mold at a pressure of 150 to 180 kg/cm 2and the temperature of 150-190°C. To increase the efficiency of contact of the reactants in the composite material mixture is prepared by mixing the components in a planetary mill.

The structure of the obtained particles was studied using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and x-ray diffractometry. On electron micrographs (Fig.1-3) carbon particles shows that they consist of a thin two-dimensional structures. The thickness of the observed carbon planes considerably the part below the resolution we used electron microscope Philips SEM505, equipped with image capture Capture Micro SEM3.0 M, and elemental microanalysis system with EDAX energy dispersive detector SAPHIRE Si(Li) type SEM10. The resolution of the microscope is about 30Ǻ.

The crystalline structure of the carbon powder was studied by x-ray diffractometer STOE IPDS. The wavelength of the IOCα=0.709 Å. The device allows measurements with a thin x-ray beam the cross-sectional diameter of 500 μm, the step displacement of the beam 10 μm. The analyzed powder was placed between the x-ray transparent micron polymer films in a special holder. The analysis of the experimental results was conducted with the accounting database of the international centre for diffraction data ICDD.

X-ray diffraction on powder carbon product shows that it consists almost entirely of crystalline phase (Fig.4). The diffraction patterns are observed maxima, the exact position of which are shown in tables 2 and 3. Instead of the intense peaks corresponding to reflections (002) and (100)associated with the diffraction of the carbon structures consisting of parallel graphite planes (for example, graphite and multi-walled carbon nanotubes), is observed only break in the field 20-12° and a weak peak at 2Θ=20,61°.
