" They accept their responsibilities as moral agents and they recognize that their special technical skills give them power and responsibilities. However, the will to act ethically is not sufficient;… (More)
The covalent, surface functionalization of graphene oxide with the malononitrile anion has been demonstrated. Once installed, these surface-bound "molecular lynchpins" can be chemically modified to increase the solubility of the graphene derivative in either organic or aqueous environments.
The MIT Faculty has made this article openly available. Please share how this access benefits you. Your story matters. The chemical modification of nano-or micro-molecular surfaces is widely used for the precise structural and/or electrical manipulation of bulk materials.  In particular, atomically thin graphitic molecules such as fullerene, carbon… (More)
