Abstract Diamondene can be formed by compressing two or more layers of graphene. As a sp2/sp3 orbital hybridized two-dimensional material, its physical properties are different from either graphene or diamond. This new material is ultrahard on a SiC substrate. Here, we focus on the thermal stability and the basic mechanical properties of diamondene without passivation. We used molecular dynamics calculations to show that diamondene has isotropic thermal expansion at temperature below 280 K. At room temperature, it is unstable. When stretched along the armchair direction, diamondene has a maximum elastic strain that is higher than 0.17. It then experiences further plastic deformation before collapse. However, when stretched along the zigzag direction, the maximum elastic strain is higher than 0.3, e.g., 0.318 at 250 K. The ribbon collapses soon after the strain exceeds the critical value. Hence, diamondene has an elastic-brittle property along the zigzag direction. This excellent elasticity is significant for applications of diamondene in a flexible device.
