The present study is devoted to ultrasonication of exfoliated graphite in different organic solvents (dimethyl sulfoxide, propanol-2, and chloroform). Graphite nanoplatelets are obtained as a result of strong acoustic treatment (10 W/cm3). The obtained samples are investigated by scanning electron microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, low-temperature nitrogen adsorption, FTIR and Raman spectroscopies. It is found that the structural and texture characteristics of the obtained materials significantly depend on the type of a solvent.
