Removal of Induced Nanobubbles from Water/Graphite Interfaces by Partial Degassing

Zhang, Xuehua; Li, Gang; Maeda, Nobuo; Hu, Jun


Nanobubbles at an interface between a hydrophobic solid and water have a wide range of implications, but the evidence for their existence is still being debated. Here we artificially induced nanobubbles on freshly cleaved HOPG substrates in water using the protocol developed previously and subjected the system to moderate levels of degassing (∼0.1 atm for 0.5 to 3 h). The AFM images after the partial degassing revealed that some nanobubbles had coalesced and detached from the substrate because...[Show more]
