Inspired by the nano/microscale hierarchical structure and the precise inorganic/organic interface of natural nacre, we fabricated artificial nacre-like papers based on noncovalent functionalized boron nitride nanosheets (NF-BNNSs) and poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) via a vacuum-assisted self-assembly technique. The artificial nacre-like papers exhibit excellent… (More)

Conducting polymer nanostructures have received increasing attention in both fundamental research and various application fields in recent decades. Compared with bulk conducting polymers, conducting polymer nanostructures are expected to display improved performance in energy storage because of the unique properties arising from their nanoscaled size: high… (More)
Polymer composites with high thermal conductivity have recently attracted much attention, along with the rapid development of the electronic devices toward higher speed and performance. However, a common method to enhance polymer thermal conductivity through an addition of high thermally conductive fillers usually cannot provide an expected value,… (More)
We developed a molecule/polymer composite hole transporting material (HTM) with a periodic microstructure for morphology replication of a corrugated Au electrode, which in combination plays a dual role in the optical and electronic enhancement of high performance perovskite solar cells (PSCs). The electro-optics revealed that perovskite couldn't readily… (More)
Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf> particles linked by graphene oxide sheets (GO-linked Al<inf>2</inf>O<inf>3</inf>), were fabricated via self-assembly leading by electrostatic attraction and incorporated into the glass fibers reinforced polymer composites (GFRPC) to improve their thermal conductivities. Flexible and ultrathin GO sheet was able to bridge adjacent… (More)
Oxabenzonorbornadienes were found to be suitable substrates for asymmetric hydroalkynylation reactions. Catalyzed by the complex of [Ir(COD)Cl](2) and (R)-SYNPHOS, oxabenzonorbornadienes and terminal alkynes could react smoothly to give the alkynylated products in moderate to good yields (up to 93% yield) and enantioselectivities (up to 85% ee).
This study demonstrates that the easily synthesized N-heteroquinones, having unusual quadruple weak hydrogen bonds of a DDAA-AADD pattern, can function as n-type organic semiconductors in OTFTs with high electron mobility.
