PEG Reagents for Surface Functionalization of Carbon Nanotubes and Graphenes

PEGylated pyrene derivatives can be used for the surface functionalization of carbon nanotubes and graphenes via the strong (close to irreversible) pi-pi stacking between the pyrene and the aromatic rings on single wall and multi-walled carbon nanotubes. How Surface Functionalization Works Pyrene is conjugated to PEG through a very stable amide bond. It is a […]
