Fabrication of core−shell structure of M@C (M=Se, Au, Ag2Se) and transformation to yolk−shell structure by electron beam irradiation or vacuum annealing
Selenium @ carbon core−shell spheres have been synthesized via a simple one-step hydrothermal carbonization process using sucrose and sodium selenite as precursors. Metal selenide or noble metal, e.g. Ag2Se or Au, can be ...
General Approach for MOF-Derived Porous Spinel AFe2O4 Hollow Structures and Their Superior Lithium Storage Properties
A general and simple approach for large-scale synthesis of porous hollow spinel AFe2O4 nanoarchitectures via metal organic framework self-sacrificial template strategy is proposed. By employing this method, we can successfully ...
Vanadium pentoxide-based cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries : morphology control, carbon hybridization, and cation doping
Vanadium pentoxide (V2O5) is a promising cathode material for high-performance lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) because of its high specific capacity, low cost, and abundant source. However, the practical application of V2O5 ...
Fabrication of flexible thermoelectric thin film devices by inkjet printing
Ink-jet printing of thermoelectric nanomaterials is successfully used to fabricate flexible thin film TE devices for power generation and cooling.
n-type carbon nanotubes/silver telluride nanohybrid buckypaper with a high-thermoelectric figure of merit
N-type thermoelectric materials was made from CNT buckypapers. We used Ag2Te to achieve electron injection to the CNTs. The thermoelectric characterizations on more than 50 samples show that the CNTs/Ag2Te hybrids exhibit ...
Growth of Si nanowires in porous carbon with enhanced cycling stability for Li-ion storage
Si nanowires are successfully grown in porous carbon by supercritical fluid-liquid-solid (SFLS) process, which show high specific capacities and charge–discharge cycling stability as anode materials for Li-ion storage. ...
Oxidation-etching preparation of MnO2 tubular nanostructures for high-performance supercapacitors
1D hierarchical tubular MnO2 nanostructures have been prepared through a facile hydrothermal method using carbon nanofibres (CNFs) as sacrificial template. The morphology of MnO2 nanostructures can be adjusted by changing ...
Controlled synthesis of carbon-coated cobalt sulfide nanostructures in oil phase with enhanced Li storage performances
A novel solvothermal process was developed for the synthesis of carbon-coated Co9S8 nanodandelions using 1-dodecanethiol as the sulfur source and the soft template. Replacing 1-dodecanethiol with sulfur powder as the sulfur ...
Growth of dandelion-shaped CuInSe2 nanostructures by a two-step solvothermal process
CuInSe2 (CIS) nanodandelion structures were synthesized by a two-step solvothermal approach. First, InSe nanodandelions were prepared by reacting In(acac)3 with trioctylphosphine-selenide (TOP-Se) in 1-octadecene (ODE) at ...
In situ formation of new organic ligands to construct two novel self-charge-transfer Pb(ii)-based frameworks
Employing in situ-formed new organic ligands, two Pb(II)-based metal–organic frameworks were synthesized. Compound 1 possesses a 3D framework while compound 2 has a layered structure. Solid state UV-visible absorptions ...
