Flexible responsive Janus nanosheets

Author affiliations


Flexible Janus nanosheets of molecular scale thickness (3.5 nm) are massively fabricated by a sol–gel process of a self-assembled monolayer of an amphiphilic silane onto a template. Groups of both sides are tuneable, and thus performance of the nanosheets, for example, is pH responsive. As a flexible solid emulsifier, the desired species can be wrapped with an individual nanosheet, which is pH triggered.
