Синтез фосфор-допированных графеновых материалов

A thermally induced cascade process leading to the formation of stable micro- and nanometer-size phosphoric droplets was developed starting from a molecular precursor. Microwave-induced pyrolysis of 1,2,3,4,5-pentaphenylphosphole oxide proceeded through a series of subsequent transformations involving formation of phosphorus-doped graphene oxide layers, seeding of carbon surface with phosphorus centers, and assembling of stable droplets. A complex nanostructured organization of the material was established in a remarkably short time of 3 min, and the process was performed in a thermally induced manner using microwave irradiation. High stability of the liquid phosphoric structures on the surface of doped graphene oxide over a few-month period was demonstrated, as well as under challenging conditions in organic solvents (chloroform, methylene chloride, or toluene media) and even under sonication. Detailed examination of this material by electron microscopy and a number of analytical methods showed its unique organization at the nanoscale, whereas computational modeling revealed unusually strong binding of phosphorus oxide P 4O10 to the graphene surface. The study demonstrates a fascinating opportunity to access a complex nanostructured multicomponent material from a single and easily available molecular precursor.
