Catalysis by Pure Graphene-From Supporting Actor to Protagonist through Shape Complementarity

Abstract

In most catalytic applications, graphene is either functionalized or acts as the catalyst support. DFT calculations show on the example of the racemizations of binaphthyl compounds that pure unmodified graphene can directly catalyze chemical processes through stabilizing noncovalent π-π interactions resulting from shape complementarity between transition structures and catalyst.
