When the graphite was employed as reinforcement in composites, it may aggregate in the form of graphite flakes (containing several graphite nanoplatelets) or exfoliate into single graphite layers (graphene). Results obtained from molecular dynamics (MD) simulation indicated that the graphene exhibit higher moduli than the graphic flakes.
