Porous molybdenum carbide nano-octahedrons synthesized via confined carburization in metal-organic frameworks for efficient hydrogen production
Electrochemical water splitting has been considered as a promising approach to produce clean and sustainable hydrogen fuel. However, the lack of high-performance and low-cost electrocatalysts for hydrogen evolution reaction ...
On the origin and underappreciated effects of ion doping in silica
The origin of selectivity in the hollowing of silica nanoparticles is investigated to further understand silica. It is realized that, during the synthesis, the silica precursors are essentially ion-paired polyelectrolytes, ...
Rutile TiO2 submicroboxes with superior lithium storage properties
Hollow structures of rutile TiO2, and especially with non-spherical shape, have rarely been reported. Herein, high-quality rutile TiO2 submicroboxes have been synthesized by a facile templating method using Fe2O3 submicrocubes ...
Formation of nickel sulfide nanoframes from metal-organic frameworks with enhanced pseudocapacitive and electrocatalytic properties
Nanoframe-like hollow structures with unique three-dimensional (3D) open architecture hold great promise for various applications. Current research efforts mainly focus on frame-like noble metals and metal oxides. However, ...
