Abstract

Layered black phosphorus crystals were prepared by the chemical vapor transport method. It is characterized by scanning electron microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. Black phosphorus exhibits inherent electrochemistry in the sense that it is oxidizable ∼560mV (vs Ag/AgCl). This study is a first step in the utilization of black phosphorus, in modern days named as stacked phosphorene, in electrochemical applications. Black is back: Layered black phosphorus crystals (multilayer phosphorene) is prepared by chemical vapor deposition method. The black phosphorus exhibits inherent electrochemistry in the sense that it is oxidizable ∼560mV (vs Ag/AgCl). This study is a first step in the utilization of black phosphorus in electrochemical applications.
