Epitaxial growth of unusual 4H hexagonal Ir, Rh, Os, Ru and Cu nanostructures on 4H Au nanoribbons
Metal nanomaterials normally adopt the same crystal structure as their bulk counterparts. Herein, for the first time, the unusual 4H hexagonal Ir, Rh, Os, Ru and Cu nanostructures have been synthesized on 4H Au nanoribbons ...
Enhancing the sensing specificity of a MoS2 nanosheet-based FRET aptasensor using a surface blocking strategy
Aptamer-based biosensing, which uses short, single-stranded nucleic acid segments to bind to a target, can be advantageous over antibody-based diagnostics due to the ease of synthesis and high stability of aptamers. However, ...
Synthesis of Ultrathin PdCu Alloy Nanosheets Used as Highly Efficient Electrocatalyst for Formic Acid Oxidation
Inspired by the unique properties of ultrathin 2D nanomaterials and excellent catalytic activities of noble metal nanostructures for renewable fuel cells, a facile method is reported for the high-yield synthesis of ultrathin ...
Hybrid micro-/nano-structures derived from metal–organic frameworks: preparation and applications in energy storage and conversion
Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), an important class of inorganic–organic hybrid crystals with intrinsic porous structures, can be used as versatile precursors or sacrificial templates for preparation of numerous functional ...
Anodized Aluminum Oxide Templated Synthesis of Metal-Organic Frameworks Used as Membrane Reactors
The incorporation of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) into membrane-shaped architectures is of great importance for practical applications. The currently synthesized MOF-based membranes show many disadvantages, such as poor ...
Cobalt oxide and N-doped carbon nanosheets derived from a single two-dimensional metal–organic framework precursor and their application in flexible asymmetric supercapacitors
Based on a new “one for two” strategy, a single two-dimensional (2D) metal–organic framework (MOF) precursor has been transformed into both electrodes (i.e., a Co3O4 cathode and a N-doped carbon anode) for a flexible ...
