  • Here, we demonstrate a simple method to exfoliate layered molybdenum trioxide (MoO3) crystallites to give multilayer MoO3 nanosheets dispersed in solvents. Exfoliation is achieved by sonicating MoO3 powder in the presence of suitable solvents followed by centrifugation to remove undispersed material. This procedure works well in a range of solvents with Hildebrand solubility parameters close to 21 MPa1/2 and is consistent with the predictions of classical solubility theory. We have fully… CONTINUE READING
