XPS with complementary multi-technique analysis of carbon materials

In person: 28 September 2021 • 4:30 PM - 4:50 PM BST | Carron 1


Understanding the surface chemistry of carbonaceous materials is of importance in a range of fields, especially with the somewhat exponential increase in the study of graphene and related materials. Such carbon materials can vary in elemental content, surface chemistry and nanostructure which will all influence the observed XPS spectrum. Whilst there have been many methods to elucidate chemical states, including SP2-SP3 ratios using XPS, they have all been reported with varying success. Here in we present a coincident multi-technique analysis of carbon materials and discuss the merits of such coincident analysis
