|Abstract:||Patterns of noble metal nanoparticles (NMNPs) of ruthenium and platinum are formed on p-phosphonic acid calixarene stabilised graphene in water. This involves hydrogen gas induced reduction of metal ions absorbed on the stabilised graphene, with TEM revealing the patterns being comprised of domains of parallel arrays of NMNPs ∼7 nm apart. The domains are orientated in three directions on each graphene sheet at an angle of ∼60° or ∼120° with respect to each other. AFM of self-assembled p-phosphonic acid calixarene on the surface of a highly ordered pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) revealed a similar pattern, implying that the orientation of the assembly of p-phosphonic acid calixarene is governed by the hexagonalmotif of graphite/graphene.|
