Exfoliating thinner flakes of phosphorene at higher yield

By deoxygenating water, researchers discovered a new way to exfoliate phosphorene into atomically thin flakes. In order for phosphorene to reach its full potential, it needs to be incredibly thin -- preferably at the atomic scale. Until now, researchers have experienced difficulties in exfoliating atomically thin flakes from the bulk material, called black phosphorus, in a quick and efficient manner.
