Fullerene-Pillared Porous Graphene with High Water Adsorption Capacity
Water purification, gas separation, and storage applications require materials with high sensitivity. Porous graphene, which possesses uniform pore structures and unique adsorption properties, is an ideal candidate for such applications. Recently, researchers from Chiba University, Japan, have developed fullerene-pillared porous graphene with high designability and controllability of pore structures using a bottom-up approach. The graphene with a 25% fullerene filling ratio is shown to exhibit the best adsorption capacity and nanopore uniformity.
