Carbon microbelt aerogel prepared by waste paper : an efficient and recyclable sorbent for oils and organic solvents
A carbon microbelt (CMB) aerogel with good selective sorption can be produced in large scale by using waste paper as a precursor. The CMB aerogel shows highly efficient sorption of organic liquids (pump oil: up to 188 times ...
A universal method for preparation of noble metal nanoparticle-decorated transition metal dichalcogenide nanobelts
MoS2, TaS2, TiS2, WSe2 and TaSe2 nanobelts decorated with a PtAg alloy or Pt NPs have been successfully synthesized by etching the 2D nanosheets under a mild reaction condition followed by the subsequent nanosheet-to-nanobelt ...
Coating two-dimensional nanomaterials with metal-organic frameworks
We demonstrate the coating of various 2D nanomaterials including MoS2 nanosheets, graphene oxide (GO), and reduced graphene oxide (rGO) with zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (i.e., ZIF-8) via a facile procedure. Additionally, ...
Growth of noble metal nanoparticles on single-layer TiS2 and TaS2 nanosheets for hydrogen evolution reaction
The preparation of single-layer TiS2 and TaS2 nanosheets is realized by optimizing the electrochemical lithium interaction and exfoliation method. As a proof of concept, Pt and Au nanoparticles are grown on the aforementioned ...
25th anniversary article : hybrid nanostructures based on two-dimensional nanomaterials
Two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials, such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), receive a lot of attention, because of their intriguing properties and wide applications in catalysis, energy-storage devices, ...
Liquid-phase epitaxial growth of two-dimensional semiconductor hetero-nanostructures
Although many two-dimensional (2D) hybrid nanostructures are being prepared, the engineering of epitaxial 2D semiconductor hetero-nanostructures in the liquid phase still remains a challenge. The preparation of 2D semiconductor ...
