- We report a novel and scalable method to obtain amphiphilic Janus nanosheets in large quantities. By inducing electrostatic attraction using alkylamine with further tuned particle interactions, a highly stable water-in-oil high internal phase emulsion was generated while simultaneously performing single-side graphene oxide hydrophobization at the fluid interface.
