Characterization of the physicochemical properties of phosphorene for the adsorption of low molecular weight gases

Project Details


Since the synthesis of graphene, the scientific community has focused on obtaining new two-dimensional materials, highlighting: hexagonal boron nitride, silicon, germanene, transition metal chalcogenides and more recently phosphorene. the latter is an almost flat two-dimensional sheet obtained by mechanical exfoliation of black phosphorus. phosphorene stands out for having an electronic gap that can be modulated by stacking different numbers of layers, doping the system or changing its geometry. therefore, these new two-dimensional phosphorus allotropes are excellent candidates for the development of optoelectronic devices, solar cells, for energy storage or for the development of catalysts. since phosphorenene and its phases obtained from minerals are newly developed materials, the study and characterization of its physicochemical properties is a prominent and necessary research field for the development of future applications. motivated by the above, in this project we will study the adsorption of low molecular weight gases on phosphorene sheets.
