Pnictogen (As, Sb, Bi) Nanosheets for Electrochemical Applications Are Produced by Shear Exfoliation Using Kitchen Blenders

Pnictogen (As, Sb, Bi) Nanosheets for Electrochemical Applications Are Produced by Shear Exfoliation Using Kitchen Blenders
Zdeněk Sofer, Daniel Bouša, Rui Gusmão, Martin Pumera
Group 5 elements (pnictogens) are attracting attention as mono-elemental 2D materials with semiconducting properties. In their Communication (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201706389), M. Pumera et al. present a green, scalable method for the aqueous shear-force exfoliation of pnictogens using household kitchen blenders. The exfoliated nanosheets were evaluated in water-splitting reactions, in which Sb showed the best performance. These results are significant for future electrochemical applications of pnictogens.
