Surface functionalization of phosphorene: a rising star in the 2D world


Since its discovery in January 2014, phosphorene, the new and intriguing 2D-material prepared by exfoliation of black phosphorus and formed only by P atoms, is showing fascinating electrical and optical properties. At variance with graphene, this new single layer material has free electron pairs onto its corrugated surface that in principle can interact with metal ions, metal-ligand fragments and organic molecules.
In our labs, transition metal nanoparticles were dispersed on the surface of phosphorene achieving new nanohybrid 2D materials. In the presentation, the application of the nanohybrids in catalytic hydrogenation will be discussed. These results represent the first application of phosphorene in this field and opens the way to a wide use of phosphorene as a hosting platform for catalytically active metal species.
