Abstract

Recent experiments with graphene oxide monolayers have suggested the possibility that the mechanical properties and fracture of the material strongly depend on its chemical composition. Atomic force microscopy experiments coupled with detailed atomistic simulations revealed the structure-property relationships in graphene oxide, which control effective elastic properties and failure. Through this work, we identified the brittle vs. ductile behavior of specific classes of functional groups in graphene oxide.
