Abstract

This thesis represents part of my research efforts aiming at the generation of new knowledge on the functionalization of carbon nanodiscs as well as the intercalation of graphene oxide and clays using a simple diamondoid derivative or polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (POSS).
The thesis also contains a study on fabrication of new complex materials by the Langmuir-Schaefer method based on metal decorated POSS.
The target of this work was the design and development of novel layered nanostructured hybrid materials for environmental, medical, energy and catalytic applications.
