  • Patent number: 10155782
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention provide a lithium-free metal dichalcogenides functionalization method where a metal dichalcogenide including a surface of predominantly semiconducting 2H phase is reacted with an aryl diazonium salt by exposing at least a portion of transition metal dichalcogenide to the aryl diazonium salt in the absence of alkyl lithium or alkyl lithium. A substantial portion of the reaction of the at least one aryl diazonium salt with the at least one transition metal dichalcogenide occurs with the semiconducting 2H phase. The aryl diazonium salt can be 4-nitrobenzenediazonium tetrafluoroborate or 4-carboxybenzene diazonium tetrafluoroborate, and the metal dichalcogenide can be MoS2. The semiconducting 2H phase of the transition metal dichalcogenide is derived directly from mechanical exfoliation such as mechanical cleaving and/or sonication.

  • Publication number: 20120142954
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a method of exchanging nanostructures from within aqueous liquid media into organic liquid media. The steps comprise first supplying solid nanostructures in an aqueous liquid media, adjusting the pH, incorporating an ionic surfactant sufficient to reduce nanostructure aggregation, followed by concentrating the nanostructures in the aqueous liquid media. The nanostructures may them be placed in organic liquid media followed by introduction of a coupling agent capable of covalent attachment to the nanostructure surface while providing a functional group capable of polymerization to covalently bond the nanostructures to a selected monomer and/or polymer resin.
