Two-Dimensional Nanosheets Produced by Liquid Exfoliation of Layered Materials
Layered transition metal dichalcogenides, such as tungsten disulfide, are exfoliated into atomically thin flakes. If they could be easily exfoliated, layered materials would become a diverse source… Expand

We have measured the dispersibility of graphene in 40 solvents, with 28 of them previously unreported. We have shown that good solvents for graphene are characterized by a Hildebrand solubility… Expand

We have measured the dispersibility of single-walled carbon nanotubes in a range of solvents, observing values as high as 3.5 mg/mL. By plotting the nanotube dispersibility as a function of the… Expand

Large-scale debundling of single-walled nanotubes has been demonstrated by dilution of nanotube dispersions in the solvent N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP). At high concentrations some very large… Expand
Solvent exfoliation of transition metal dichalcogenides: dispersibility of exfoliated nanosheets varies only weakly between compounds.
We have studied the dispersion and exfoliation of four inorganic layered compounds, WS(2), MoS(2), MoSe(2), and MoTe(2), in a range of organic solvents. The aim was to explore the relationship… Expand
New Solvents for Nanotubes: Approaching the Dispersibility of Surfactants
We demonstrate dispersion and exfoliation of nanotubes in two new solvents for nanotubes, cyclohexyl-pyrrolidone (CHP) and 1-benzyl-2-pyrrolidinone (NBenP). Both solvents are structural analogues of… Expand
Quantitative Evaluation of Surfactant-stabilized Single-walled Carbon Nanotubes: Dispersion Quality and Its Correlation with Zeta Potential
Stable dispersions of single-walled carbon nanotubes in deionized water were prepared using six common surfactants: sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate (SDBS), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), lithium… Expand

Applications of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) are severely restricted, as they exist in rope-like bundles. Many methods have been suggested to de-bundle SWNTs, including both covalent and… Expand
Large Populations of Individual Nanotubes in Surfactant-Based Dispersions without the Need for Ultracentrifugation
Stable dispersions of single-walled carbon nanotubes have been produced using the surfactant sodium dodecylbenzene sulfonate (SDBS). Atomic force microscopy analysis shows that, on dilution of these… Expand
