Uniform NiS2 nanocubes are successfully synthesized with a microwave-assisted method. Interestingly, NiS2 nanocubes, nanospheres and nanoparticles are obtained by controlling microwave reaction time. NiS2 nanomaterials are primarily applied to supercapacitors and cocatalytic enhancing photocatalytic H2 production. Different morphologies of NiS2(More)
In this study, a topotactic transformation route was proposed to synthesize single-crystalline β-NiS hollow spheres with uniform phase and morphology evolving from polycrystalline α-NiS hollow spheres. Uniform polycrystalline α-NiS hollow spheres were firstly prepared with thiourea and glutathione as sulfur sources under hydrothermal conditions through the(More)
A simple hydrothermal method has been developed to prepare hexagonal tablet precursors, which are then transformed into porous sodium-doped Ni2P2O7 hexagonal tablets by a simple calcination method. The obtained samples were evaluated as electrode materials for supercapacitors. Electrochemical measurements show that the electrode based on the porous(More)
ZnO materials with a range of different morphologies have been successfully synthesized via a simple double-solvothermal method in the presence of glycine. The morphologies of the products can be controlled from superstructures to microrods by adjusting the amount of water in the EtOH/H2O system. Photoluminescence (PL) studies reveal that the more amount of(More)
We successfully controlled the crystallographic surface of ZnSn(OH)(6) crystals and systematically obtained ZnSn(OH)(6) crystals in different shapes including cubes, truncated cubes, cuboctahedrons, truncated octahedrons, and octahedrons using a simple solvothermal method in a methylcellulose (MC) ethanol/water solution. By simply adjusting the amount of(More)
Mesoporous hybrid NiOx-MnOx nanoprisms have been successfully prepared in this work. The synthesis process involves a facile solvothermal method for preparation of Ni-Mn precursor particles and a subsequent annealing treatment. These mesoporous hybrid NiOx-MnOx nanoprisms have a high surface area of 101.6 m(2) g(-1). When evaluated as electrode materials in(More)
One-dimensional goethite (α-FeOOH) nanorods were successfully fabricated by a hydrothermal route without any template. Experimental results reveal that concentrations of Fe(3+) and ethylenediaminetetraacetic disodium salt (Na2EDTA) affect the phase composition and size of the as-synthesized products. The size of the rod-like α-FeOOH increased when the(More)
3D hierarchical CdS mesoporous nanosheets are prepared via a facile hydrothermal method in the presence of soulcarboxymthyi chitosan. By investigation of various reaction parameters, it is demonstrated that the reaction temperature and the amounts of ammonia, thiourea and Cd(NO3)2 play important roles in the formation of 3D hierarchical CdS. The optical(More)
In this study, we report the synthesis of monodispersive solid and hollow CdS spheres with structure-dependent photocatalytic abilities for dye photodegradation. The monodispersive CdS nanospheres were constructed with the assistance of the soulcarboxymthyi chitosan biopolymer under hydrothermal conditions. The solid CdS spheres were corroded by ammonia to(More)
In this work, we have successfully developed a simple self-template route for preparation of hollow ellipsoid Ni-Mn sulfides. This route involves the synthesis of solid Ni-Mn ellipsoids via a chemical precipitation method. Then, using thioacetamide (TAA) as the sulfur source, the solid Ni-Mn ellipsoids can be easily converted to hollow ellipsoid Ni-Mn(More)
