• Carborane functionalization of the aromatic network in chemically-synthesized graphene 

      Kahlert, Jan U.; Rawal, Aditya; Hook, James M.; Rendina, Louis M.; Choucair, Mohammad
      Published 2014-08-06
      The conjugated aromatic system of graphene was used to trap the reactive, boron-rich 1,2-carborane cluster. Functionalization of the graphene surface was confirmed by solid-state MAS 11B NMR spectroscopy and quantified by ...

      Published 2016-01-01
      We report the first example of an ionic graphene salt containing boron. An anionic charge is introduced to the graphene surface by means of 7,8-nido-[C2B9H11]− carborane clusters covalently and electronically bound to the ...
