Abstract

We show the spontaneous formation of multiple nanoscale carbon p–n junctions between carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and negatively charged N,B-codoped graphene (NBG). Application of these carbon nanocomposites to catalyze the selective oxidation of an organic amine to imine resulted in an unprecedented activity under mild conditions.
