Title：Chemical Environment effects on Graphene and related 2D-Materials
Overview :Electronic and Structural properties of Graphene as an actual carbon material rather than an ideal model for two dimensional systems with novel Dirac Fermion is significantly influenced by the presence of edges, defects and impurities, and so on. Especially, surrounding guest chemical species play an important role for two dimensional host materials like graphene, where the host-guest interactions though the surface and the interface between supporting substrate is classified into three types according to the energy scale of interactions; chemical modification by covalent bonding, charge transfer by electrostatic interaction, and mechanical strain by physisorption. In this talk, I would like to focus mainly on the charge transfer interactions caused by guest chemical species facing with graphene as well as other related “2D-Materials”. Interestingly, such molecular proximity effects for adsorbed molecules on the surface of graphene show significant dependence on EF expe rimentally tuned by gate voltage, where hole and electron doping by oxygen and hydrazine molecules, respectively, exhibit opposite dependence on EF. This is explained by a mechanism by electrochemical process involving co-existing water molecule for charge transfer phenomena by molecular adsorption on graphene.
