Enhanced dispersion of graphite fibres in water through surface modification
Research data：Enhanced dispersion of graphite fibres in water through surface modification Firstly, graphite fibres we studied have smooth, inert surfaces and poor dispersion in water. There are relatively few studies on the surface modification of graphite fibre, which is a challenging process. Secondly, we achieved a high-density and uniform distribution of nanoparticles on the surface of graphite fibre by an electrophoretic deposition process. Thirdly, we chose a new nanomaterial for the modification: Ti3C2Tx MXene. This material has superior hydrophilicity and electrical conductivity and can be electrodeposited at a low voltage within a short time, ensuring little damage to graphite fibre.
