Alkylamine Assisted Ultrasound Exfoliation of MoS2 Nanosheets and Organic Photovoltaic Application
The layered two-dimensional transition metal dichalcogenide MoS2 have attracted great interest in electronic devices and energy conversion areas owning to its graphene like structure and superior optoelectronic properties. Here a liquid sonication method is developed for exfoliation of MoS2 nanosheets with largely increased production yield by introducing alkylamines. The effect of alkylamine structure, initiating MoS2 concentration and sonication time was investigated in terms of exfoliation yield and colloidal stability of the nanosheets. UV-vis absorption spectroscopy, transmission electron microscope, and Raman spectroscopy were used to characterize the exfoliated nanosheets. These MoS2 nanosheets showed good dispersity in common organic solvents with good colloidal stability over months, which renders them the great potential for solution based device fabrication. Hybrid solar cell was constructed with MoS2 nanosheets incorporating with polymer:fullerene as photoactive layer.
