Template-free formation of uniform urchin-like α-FeOOH hollow spheres with superior capability for water treatment
Uniform urchin-like α-FeOOH hollow spheres assembled from nanoneedles have been synthesized via a facile and green one-pot method. By simply adjusting the amount of glycerol in the reaction system, hierarchical urchin-like ...
One-pot synthesis of ultra-light nickel nanofoams composed of nanowires and their transformation into various functional nanofoams
Ultra-light Ni nanofoams composed of nanowires have been synthesized on a large scale by a facile reflux approach. From the Ni nanofoam, many other functional nanofoams, composed of semi-hollow NiO nanowires, multi-generation ...
The comparative lithium storage properties of urchin-like hematite spheres : hollow vs. solid
Urchin-like α-Fe2O3 spheres, hollow or solid, are obtained by thermally annealing their α-FeOOH precursor structures, which are synthesized via a facile hydrothermal method. The “hollowness” of these α-FeOOH spheres can ...
Green synthesis of NiO nanobelts with exceptional pseudo-capacitive properties
NiO nanobelts are prepared by a simple, green method. The as-prepared NiO nanobelts have supercapacitive performance that is superior to other NiO-based electrode materials, with a very high specific capacitance of ≈600 F ...
Porous Co3O4 nanowires derived from long Co(CO3)0.5(OH)·0.11H2O nanowires with improved supercapacitive properties
Porous Co3O4 nanowires with large aspect ratio have been obtained by annealing long Co(CO3)0.5(OH)·0.11H2O precursor nanowires synthesized by a facile hydrothermal method. The results show that the amount of the additive ...
Sandwich-structured TiO2-Pt-graphene ternary hybrid electrocatalysts with high efficiency and stability
The practical application of low temperature fuel cells is largely hindered by the unavailability of efficient electrocatalysts with high activity and stability. A promising strategy to design highly active electrocatalysts ...
