Advancements in plasma-enabled synthesis have led to the development of novel and effective methods to convert low-cost natural waste resources into high quality nanomaterials with a wide range of applications. In this work, we report rapid reforming of sugarcane bagasse, a low-value by-product of the sugarcane industry, into high-quality vertically-oriented graphene nanosheets at a relatively low temperature of 400 °C. We show that thus-fabricated nanostructures have antifouling and antibacterial properties that are similar to (e.g., Escherichia coli) or slightly exceed (e.g., Staphylococcus aureus) those of graphene nanosheets fabricated from high-purity, expensive methane under similar conditions.
