Carbon Nanoforms can be easily functionalized with disulfides, diselenides and ditellurides

What is it about?

Simple reaction among biphenyl dichalcogenides and several carbon nanoforms such as SWNT, DWNT, MWNT and nanohorns takes place in refluxing toluene. This may lead to new materials in which the energetic levels can be tuned at will for organic electronics

Why is it important?

This novel reactions may lead to the synthesis of new hybrid materials in which the energetic levels can be tuned at will for organic electronics.
