Polyol functionalized water soluble carbon nanostructures
AuthorKhabashesku, Valery N.; Kuznetsov, Oleksandr; Lobo, Rui
A method of making a water soluble carbon nanostructure includes treating a fluorinated carbon nanostructure material with a polyol in the presence of a base. A water soluble carbon nanostructure comprises a fluorinated carbon nanostructure covalently bound to a polyol. Exemplary uses of water soluble carbon nanostructures include use in polymer composites, biosensors and drug delivery vehicles.
