A novel, one-step, wet-free, environmental friendly and high-yield method for producing few-layer graphene powders with large surface areas (up to 800 m2/g) and narrow nanopore sizes (0.7-0.8 nm) using plasma-induced exfoliation of natural graphite is presented. Advanced characterization techniques were employed, including scanning and transmission electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and N2 gas adsorption/desorption measurements at 77 K, to investigate the morphological, elemental, structural and textural/porosity properties of these nanomaterials. Fully reversible H2 gas adsorption/desorption isotherms with maximum gravimetric capacities of up to ∼2 wt.% at 77 K and ∼60 bar are reported here. The H2 storage performance at 77 K is well correlated with certain textural features such as specific surface area and microporosity. The results of this work provide a valuable feedback for further research on plasma-processed graphene-based materials towards efficient H2 storage via cryo-adsorption. © 2016 Elsevier Inc.
