An insoluble solid of historic Prussian blue (PB) was transformed into dispersible PB nanoparticles in water and various hydrophilic and hydrophobic organic solvents. Via hybrid surface modification using Na4[FeII(CN)6] and short-chain alkylamines, the insoluble PB was successfully dispersed in hydrophilic-and-hydrophobic boundary alcohols, such as n-butanol. The n-butanol-dispersible PB nanoparticles afforded homogeneous spin-coated thin films on various substrates. The chemisorbed shorter… Expand
