Ultrathin S-doped MoSe2 nanosheets for efficient hydrogen evolution
We report the synthesis of ultrathin S-doped MoSe2 nanosheets demonstrating enhanced HER catalysis with a low onset overpotential of 90 mV and a Tafel slope of 58 mV per decade. We attribute the improved catalytic effects ...
Metal oxide-coated three-dimensional graphene prepared by the use of metal-organic frameworks as precursors
A simple method for the preparation of metal-oxide-coated three-dimensional (3D) graphene composites was developed. The metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) that served as the precursors of the metal oxides were first synthesized ...
Synthesis of porous, hollow metal MCO3 (M=Mn, Co, Ca) microstructures and adsorption properties thereof
Porous, hollow metal carbonate microstructures show many unique properties, and are attractive for various applications. Herein, we report the first demonstration of a general strategy to synthesize hollow metal carbonate ...
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 ...
Graphene and graphene-based materials for energy storage applications
With the increased demand in energy resources, great efforts have been devoted to developing advanced energy storage and conversion systems. Graphene and graphene-based materials have attracted great attention owing to ...
