Thiofluorographene-hydrophilic graphene derivative with semiconducting and genosensing properties
We present the first example of covalent chemistry on fluorographene, enabling the attachment of –SH groups through nucleophilic substitution of fluorine in a polar solvent. The resulting thiographene-like, 2D derivative ...
The structural stability of graphene anticorrosion coating materials is compromised at low potentials
Corrosion of engineered structures is a major problem causing an estimated economic loss of more than 2 trillion US dollars annually worldwide. Graphene has recently emerged as highly promising, low-cost, and transparent ...
Chemical energy powered nano/micro/macromotors and the environment
The rise of miniaturized artificial self-powered devices, demonstrating autonomous motion, has brought in new considerations from the environmental perspective. This review addresses the interplay between these ...
Evaluation of the sorbent properties of single- and multiwalled carbon nanotubes for volatile organic compounds through thermal desorption-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) possess well-defined structural and chemical characteristics coupled with a large surface area that makes them ideal as sorbent materials for applications where adsorption processes are required. ...
