The structure is envisioned as stacks of parallel sheets consisting of hexagonal carbon atoms. Because of Van de Waals interactions, they are easy to agglomerate and typically have 5-20 layers. It has a thickness of 5-10 nm having varying sizes up to 50 microns. These nanoparticles are made up of short steps of platelets shaped graphene sheets. Nanoplatelets exhibit good electrical and thermal conductivity, which is due to pure graphitic composition. Therefore, they are widely used as electrodes in batteries and supercapacitors. They are also used in coatings or adhesives. Nanoplatelets also reduced permeability to be used for strong and impermeable packaging.
