From 2D materials to 3D architectures
Building Functional Porous Networks from ‘White Graphene’
Dr Camille Petit from Imperial College London will deliver the second BP-ICAM webinar of 2017 on the topic of 2D materials and 3D architectures.
The field of 2D materials is one of the most exciting areas of materials science and engineering at the moment. While graphene is undoubtedly the most celebrated 2D material, many others exist such as boron nitride nanosheets (aka ‘white graphene’), transition metal dichalcogenides, phosphorene, or metal oxide nanosheets. With this exciting field of science come a number of technical challenges related to: the understanding and control of the materials properties, their large-scale production or their integration into 3D functional devices.
This webinar will present various types of 2D materials and describe why they have attracted considerable attention from the academic and industrial communities. It will then focus on making 3D structures from 2D materials as a way to develop multifunctional devices with tunable architectures. Specific applications of such 3D structures in the areas of molecular separations and catalysis will be discussed. The presentation will focus mostly on boron nitride materials, with specific examples taken from Dr Petit’s research group activities.
