Ruthenium Oxide Nanosheets via Ultrasonic Exfoliation

Ruthenium oxide monolayer nanosheets can efficiently produced using probe-type ultrasonication. Major advantages of ultrasonic nanosheet exfoliation are process efficiency, high yields, short treatment and facile, safe operation. Due to its high efficiency and superior quality of produced nanosheets, ultrasonication is used for the industrial production of numerous nanosheets including graphene and borophene.

Ultrasonic Exfoliation of Ruthenium Oxide Nanosheets

Ruthenium oxide (RuO2, also known as ruthenate) nanosheets offer unique properties such as high conductivity, low resistivity, high stability, high work function and good susceptibility to dry etching. This makes ruthenium oxide an good material for electrodes in memory devices and transistors.

Ultrasonic exfoliation is a highly efficient method for the quick and simple production of ruthenium oxide monolayer nanosheets.

Case Study: Highly Efficient RuO2 Exfoliation using a Probe-Type Ultrasonicator

Ultrasonic liquid exfoliation of single-layer nanosheets.Kim et al. (2021) showed in their study the significant improvement in exfoliation of ruthenium oxide monolayer nanosheets. The researcher created high yields of thin RuO2 metal oxide sheets using ultrasonication. The conventional intercalation process through ion exchange reactions is slow and produces only limited amounts of two-dimensional (2D) nanosheets due to the size of molecules and chemical energy required for the reaction. In order to make the process faster and increase the amount of ruthenium oxide nano-sheets produced, they intensified the exfoliation process by applying ultrasound energy to the solution of RuO2 oxide. They found that after just 15 minutes of ultrasonication, the amount of sheets increased by over 50%, simultaneously the lateral size of the sheets decreased. Density functional theory calculations demonstrated that the activation energy of exfoliation is significantly reduced by splitting the RuO2 layers into a small lateral size. Thissize reduction happens because the sonication helped to break apart the layers of metal oxide more easily. This research underlines that using ultrasound is a good and easy way to make ruthenium oxide monolayer nanosheets. This shows that an ultrasonic-supported ion exchange process offers a facile and efficient approach for fabricating 2D metal oxide nanosheets. The befits of ultarsonic exfoliation explain why ultrasonic exfoliation and delamination is widely used as production technique for 2D nanomaterials, also known as xenes, including graphene and borophene.

Ultrasonic exfoliation process using the HIelscher UIP1000hd ultrasonicator accelerates and intensifies the exfoliation of ruthenium oxide monolayer nano-sheets significantly. RuO2 nanosheets exhibit a high conductivity and are considered as potential material for superconductors.

Ultrasonic exfoliation of RuO2 nanosheets can be performed on lab-scale, too. The picture shows the probe-type ultrasonicator UP400St during nanosheet exfoliation in a beaker.

Protocol for Ultrasonically-Assisted Ruthenium Oxide Exfoliation

The following protocol is a step-by-step instruction for synthesizing RuO2 nanosheets using ultrasonically supported ion exchange reaction process as describes by Kim et al. (2021).
 

  1. Prepare a solution of RuO2 and an intercalant by dissolving them in solvent (2-propanol) and stirring for up to 3 days.
  2. Apply ultrasound energy using a probe-type ultrasonicator (e.g., probe-type ultrasonicator UP1000hdT (1000W, 20kHz) with sonotrode BS4d22) to the solution for 15 minutes in order to increase the yield of RuO2 nanosheets by over 50% and to split the RuO2 layers into a uniformly small lateral size.
  3. Use density functional theory calculations to confirm the activation energy of exfoliation is significantly reduced.
  4. Collect the resulting RuO2 nanosheets, which can be used for various applications.

 
The simplicity of this protocol for ultrasonic exfoliation of RuO2 nanosheets underlines the benefits of ultrasonic nanosheet production. Sonication is a highly efficient technique to produce high-quality monolayer RuO2 nanosheets with a thickness of approximately 1 nm. The protocol was also found to be scalable and reproducible, making it suitable for large-scale production of RuO2 nanosheets for various applications in electronics, catalysis, and energy storage.
