    • 2009, January 30, “D. C. Elias et al.”, in Control of Graphene's Properties by Reversible Hydrogenation: Evidence for Graphane[1]:
      Because of the random nature of ripples, single-sided graphane is expected to be a disordered material, similar to graphene oxide, rather than a new graphene-based crystal.
