Abstract

As catalyst, pristine holey graphene can convert Nitrobenzene to Azobenzene (grey bar) with 100% selectivity by 100% conversion (blue bar)


Invention Summary:

Rutgers Researchers have developed a novel and scalable approach to fabricate pristine holey graphene nanoplatelets with nearly free of defects and metal resides via microwave irritation. The hole edges can be controlled to be rich in zigzag geometry, which is the preferred structure for catalytic and electronic applications.

The main workhorse in developing various industrial important chemical catalytic and electronic applications relies on traditional s-d transition metals. The holey graphene with a large amount of zigzag edges and nanoholes resemble those catalytic and electronic features of traditional s-d metals and can be used to develop metal free catalyst and electronics with similar or even better performance, while in the same time, avoiding the sustainability and environmental issues associated with transition metals.

The researchers have tested the potentials of this invention in catalytic and electronic applications. The pristine holey graphene can reduce molecular oxygen to directly water with a 4e pathway, which is critical for fuel cell application. As the catalyst in reduction Nitrobenzene to Aniline/Azobenzene, pristine holey graphene can achieve 100% selectivity to Azobenzene by 99% conversion.
