Preparation and Characterization of Dopamine-Decorated Hydrophilic Carbon Black

Publication year: 2012 Source: Applied Surface Science, Available online 13 February 2012 Lijun Zhu, Yonglai Lu, Yiqing Wang, Liqun Zhang, Wencai Wang Inspired by the bio-adhesive proteins secreted by mussels for attachment to almost all wet substrates, a facile method involving oxidative polymerization of dopamine was proposed to prepare highly hydrophilic carbon black (CB) particles. A self-assembled polydopamine (PDA) ad-layer was formed via the oxidative polymerization of dopamine on the surface of CB simply by dipping the CB into an alkaline dopamine solution and mildly stirring at room temperature
