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 ...
Synthesis of uniform layered protonated titanate hierarchical spheres and their transformation to anatase TiO2 for lithium-ion batteries
Layered protonated titanates (LPTs), a class of interesting inorganic layered materials, have been widely studied because of their many unique properties and their use as precursors to many important TiO2-based functional ...
Titania nanosheets hierarchically assembled on carbon nanotubes as high-rate anodes for lithium-ion batteries
Obey the hierarchy! Hierarchically structured nanocables with TiO2 nanosheets (TiO2-NSs) anchored on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been synthesized by growing layered hydrogen titanate (LHT) nanosheets on carbon nanotubes, ...
Self-supported interconnected Pt nanoassemblies as highly stable electrocatalysts for low-temperature fuel cells
In it for the long haul: Clusters of Pt nanowires (3D Pt nanoassemblies, Pt NA) serve as an electrocatalyst for low-temperature fuel cells. These Pt nanoassemblies exhibit remarkably high stability following thousands of ...
Direct synthesis of anatase TiO2 nanowires with enhanced photocatalytic activity
Anatase TiO2 nanowires have been directly synthesized via a one-pot solvothermal approach. The curved nanowires with a length of ca. 300 nm and a diameter of ca. 10 nm are grown along the  direction and assembled into ...
