Emerging photoluminescence in azo-pyridine intercalated graphene oxide layers

Author affiliations

Abstract

Inspite of being a potential material for electronic applications graphene possesses very poor optical properties, which need to be modified to make it suitable for optoelectronic devices. To achieve superior optical properties, graphene oxide (GO) sheets are functionalized with azo-pyridine to form a new intercalated structure with an interlayer separation of 0.9 nm. These azo-pyridine intercalated GO sheets show superior optical properties with bright blue emission via excited state intra-molecular proton transfer (ESIPT) which have potential applications in graphene based optoelectronic devices.
