Surfactant-assisted exfoliation routes to few-layer black phosphorus in aqueous media have recently been reported. The stability of such few-layer black phosphorus has been studied using a range of spectroscopic techniques. The material is meta-stable in aqueous media, degrading over time, mainly to phosphoric acids.
