In a one-step reaction, we prepared a dibenzylamine perylene diimide derivative (PDI). Its double hook structure allows for self-association with a constant of Kd ~108 M-1 determined by fluorescence. We confirmed its ability to bind PAHs using UV/...
Acetylene‐Mediated Borophosphene Dirac Materials as Efficient Anode Materials for Lithium‐Ion Batteries
Von Wiley-VCH zur Verfügung gestellt
Generally, graphynes have been generated by the insertion of acetylenic content (-C≡C-) in the graphene network in different ratios. Also, several aesthetically pleasing architectures of two-dimensional (2D) flatlands have been reported with the incorporation of acetylenic linkers between the heteroatomic constituents. Prompted by the experimental realization of hexagonal boron phosphide, which has provided new insights on the 2D boron-pnictogen family, we have modelled novel forms of acetylene-mediated borophosphene nanosheets by joining the orthorhombic borophosphene stripes with different widths and with different atomic constituents using acetylenic linkers. Structural stabilities and properties of these novel forms have been assessed using first-principles calculations. Investigation of electronic band structure elucidates that all the novel forms show the linear band crossing closer to the fermi level at Dirac point with distorted Dirac cones. The linearity in the hole and electronic bands impose the high Fermi velocity to the charge carriers close to that of graphene. Finally, we have also unravelled the propitious features of acetylene-mediated borophosphene nanosheets as anodes in Li-ion batteries.Zum Volltext
