Computer simulation of the mercury and nickel heating on graphene

E. Galashev, V. A. Polukhin


It was revealed that due to both side covering of two-layered graphene the ability of metal wetting on the surface of such system were lowered noticeably with heating up to temperatures as high as 1800 K. The combined effect of the edge hydrogenation of mono-layered graphene with the presence of mercury nanofilm on its plane and formed Stone–Wales point defects in graphene hexagonal lattice has been permitted to keep the interface structure of Hg film up to 600 K, but with the following heating to the higher range of temperatures the mercury film has been converted into the liquid drop.
