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 ...
Formation of uniform Fe3O4 hollow spheres organized by ultrathin nanosheets and their excellent lithium storage properties
Hierarchical Fe3O4 hollow spheres constructed by nanosheets are obtained from solvothermally synthesized Fe–glycerate hollow spheres. With the unique structural features, these hierarchical Fe3O4 hollow spheres exhibit ...
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 ...
Porosity-controlled TiNb2O7 microspheres with partial nitridation as a practical negative electrode for high-power lithium-ion batteries
Titanium niobium oxide (TiNb2O7) has been recognized as a promising anode material for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) in view of its potential to operate at high rates with improved safety and high theoretical capacity of ...
One-pot synthesis of Pt-Co alloy nanowire assemblies with tunable composition and enhanced electrocatalytic properties
Three-dimensional (3D) Pt-based alloy nanostructures composed of one-dimensional (1D) nanowires/nanorods have recently attracted significant interest as electrocatalysts. In this work, we report an effective solvothermal ...
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, ...
