Abstract

We demonstrate that layered carbon black nanoparticles can be oxidatively peeled via the reaction with potassium permanganate in sulfuric acid. As a result of this reaction, outer layers of carbon nanoparticles "peel" off due to high levels of oxidation while the less oxidized inner cores, though they exhibit remarkable solubility in water, remain mostly intact.
