Polymer functionalization and solubilization of carbon nanosheets.

Abstract

Few-layer graphene materials or "carbon nanosheets" were covalently functionalized with poly(vinyl alcohol) via ester linkages, and the resulting functionalized sample became soluble, allowing solution-phase processing for various purposes such as the fabrication of polymer-carbon nanosheets composites containing no dispersion agents or any other foreign substances.
