23_30i/2013Nanoribbons: Nitrogen-Doped Graphitic Nanoribbons: Synthesis, Characterization, and Transport (Adv. Funct. Mater. 30/2013)

Nitrogen-doped graphitic nanoribbons are synthesized by a single-step chemical vapor deposition method using pyrazine as the nitrogen source. As M. Terrones and co-workers report on page 3755, the morphology of the nanoribbons is correlated to the presence of N atoms within the graphitic structure. Spectroscopy results, in conjunction with transport measurements on individual nanoribbons and DFT theoretical simulations, indicate that nitrogendoped graphitic nanoribbons possess features that are potentially useful for the development of sensors and other electronic components.
