Acid Assisted Synthesis of HB Sheets through Exfoliation of MgB2 Bulk in Organic Media
Hydrogen boride sheets (HB sheets) were efficiently synthesized through wet chemical exfoliation of bulk MgB2. High production yield of HB sheets over 50% was achieved in 2 h reaction time by the addition of formic acid into the organic media with the presence of proton-exchange resin. Synthesized HB sheets exhibited two-dimensional nanostructure with sp(2)-like bonds.
