Chapter Six

Functionalization and In Situ Polymerization

Abstract

This chapter defines functionalization of graphitic nanomaterials and gives examples of uses of some functional groups, such as metal ligands, chelating agents, etc. It further discusses the in-situ polymerization concept in polymer chemistry. The use of this technique to embed graphitic nanomaterials into polymer backbones during the polymerization process is reviewed through references. The merit of substituting GN for each of those applications for ‘graphene’ and ‘graphene oxide’ is proposed with illustrative, technical and cost comparisons. Functionalization of nanomaterials to perform specific tasks such as catalyst carriage, metal chelating compound immobilization, crosslinking ...
