New, and new routes to, carbon materials

I offer a personal perspective of several types of carbons and related materials that appear to me to be “on the horizon”. These include sp3-rich carbon materials including diamond possibly made from polymers, and ‘diamane’ made from functionalization of AB-stacked few layer graphene on metal substrates. Our conversion of large area polycrystalline metal foils to large area single crystal metal foils (so far, for 5 different metals) allows us to pursue strategies to attempt to achieve diamane (which we have relatively strong evidence of having recently made), as well as large area single crystal graphene and h-BN, and other interesting materials as well.
