Synthesis of selenium nano-composite (t-Se@PS) by surface initiated atom transfer radical polymerization

Author affiliations

Abstract

Selenium nanostructures, which are otherwise susceptible to oxidative damage, were encapsulated with a thin layer of polystyrene. The thin layer of polystyrene was grafted onto the surfaces of selenium by a surface initiated atom transfer radical polymerization reaction. These encapsulated nanostructures demonstrate an enhanced resistance towards corrosion.
