Abstract (technical / expert description):

The overarching goal of the Hy-solFullGraph project is to undertake, from a molecular level, the synthesis of new functional hybrid materials based on carbon allotropes with outstanding properties. Synthetic carbon allotropes (SCAs) are regarded to be among the most promising candidates for future high performance materials. Precise control of the derivatisation will play a key role in tailoring their solubility and reactivity to maximise the advantages of their outstanding …
