AbstractThe subnanometer size of the interlayer space of graphite oxide (GO) offers exciting opportunities in the design of materials for separation technologies, hydrogen storage, gas capture, and 2D confinement studies [1-4]. Pillaring GO by intercalation of organic and inorganic molecules is an extended method to synthesize porous materials with a tunable pore size [2]. In the present work, we study the kinetics of intercalation and deintercalation of 1-Pr in a Brodie-synthesized GO by making recourse of the unique capabilities of neutron diffraction. A simple para-crystalline model allows us to obtain detailed structural information from the width and position of the first diffraction peak and its second order counterpart. The results show a remarkable improvement of GO structural order upon 1-Propanol (1-Pr) uptake, as well as a non-trivial dynamics of the 1-Pr intercalated in GO: we observed an ordering transition of the 2D molecular packing that triggers the formation of 1-Pr bilayers. Furthermore, upon 1-Pr desorption, a stable “dry” intercalate with excellent structural order is achieved, opening a promising procedure for the development of layered carbon nanomaterials with tailored pore sizes.
