Abstract:

Room temperature ozonolysis of fluorinated SWNT and phenyl-sulfonated SWNT have been studied in perfluoropolyether (PFPE) solvents. Etching at the end caps (∼70 nm/hour for fluorinated SWNT/PFPE suspension with 1 g/l concentration) has been demonstrated to be the dominating effect during the ozonolysis of fluorinated SWNT. Base on characterization by AFM analysis, X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) and Raman Spectroscopy, fluorination along the SWNT side-walls protects F-SWNT from extensive functionalization by ozonolysis. An ozone reaction with fluorinated SWNT has been found to improve its solubility in 96% sulfuric acid. This allows oxidative cutting by ammonium peroxydisulfate without defluorination. In comparison to fluorinated SWNT, phenyl-sulfonated SWNT was found to be effectively and homogeneous cut by ozonolysis in a water suspension.
