Chemical fictionalization of graphene and hydrogen storage are both generating significant research interest in the condensed matter community. In this work, the authors investigate how hydrogen chemisorption influences the mechanical properties of graphene sheets.
They revealed that hydrogen chemisorption deteriorates graphene mechanical properties, and this effect is strongly influenced by chirality. Hydrogen chemisorption is also temperature dependent due to variations in graphene morphology.
