New paper “Improving 2D-organization of fullerene Langmuir-Schäfer thin films by interaction with cellulose nanocrystals” published on Carbon (Elsevier)

The paper Improving 2D-organization of fullerene Langmuir-Schäfer thin films by interaction with cellulose nanocrystals is the fruit of a collaboration between the Universities of Pisa, Bari, Salento, and Trieste and of the Basque Foundation for Science.

The paper is an in-deep investigation on the ability of sulfated CNCs to assist the two-dimensional organization of fulleropyrrolidines at the air/water interface, leading to hybrid Langmuir-Schäfer films with improved (photo)electrical properties. The CNCs are able to favour the assembly of organized hybrid C60/CNC films with improved photo-electrochemical properties. The favored hydrogen evolution reaction paves the way to the development of more performing C60-based electrochemical devices, able to better exploit the unique properties of carbon nanostructures.
