Preparation of Layered Inorganic/Organic Nanocomposites by Nanosecond Pulsed Laser Ablation of Ag in Liquids
A novel layered AgBr-based nanocomposite (designated as AgBr-NC) was prepared using nanosecond pulsed laser ablation in liquids (PLAL) in the presence of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB). The obtained layered AgBr-NC possesses well-defined 2D shape. X-ray diffraction (XRD) pattern was composed of a series of peaks that could be indexed to (00/) reflections of a layered structure, and the basal spacing of 20.0 Å indicated that the surfactant was included between the AgBr interlayers in an interdigitated bilayer arrangement. In this work, we provide an experimental proof for the synthesis of a novel layered two-dimensional (2D) AgBr-NC nanosheet using PLAL in the presence of CTAB. The formation mechanism of 2D nanocomposites is also discussed.
