Treatment of graphene/SiC dies in inorganic electrolytes (KOH, KCl and Na2SO4) is discussed. An electrochemical method based on the cyclic voltammetry in a conventional three-electrode cell with Ag/AgCl reference electrode, a platinum counter electrode, and the graphene/SiC dies as working electrode (anode) is used for the treatment. It was observed either partial oxidation of graphene or its complete dissolution with the formation of CO2. The treatment performed resulted in the deterioration of the graphene films and change of the graphene-die resistivity depending on the range of the scanning potential applied to the graphene/SiC dies.
