Analysis of low molecular weight compounds with matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOFMS) has been developed by using carbon nanotubes obtained from coal by arc discharge as the matrix. The carbon nanotube matrix functions as substrate to trap analytes of peptides, organic compounds, and beta-cyclodextrin(More)
Chemically converted graphene aerogels with ultralight density and high compressibility are prepared by diamine-mediated functionalization and assembly, followed by microwave irradiation. The resulting graphene aerogels with density as low as 3 mg cm(-3) show excellent resilience and can completely recover after more than 90% compression. The ultralight(More)
Lithium-sulphur batteries are one very appealing power source with high energy density. But their practical use is still hindered by several issues including short lifespan, low efficiency and safety concern from the lithium anode. Polysulphide dissolution and insulating nature of sulphur are generally considered responsible for the capacity degradation.(More)
MXenes, a new family of 2D materials, combine hydrophilic surfaces with metallic conductivity. Delamination of MXene produces single-layer nanosheets with thickness of about a nanometer and lateral size of the order of micrometers. The high aspect ratio of delaminated MXene renders it promising nanofiller in multifunctional polymer nanocomposites. Herein,(More)
Carbon nanotubes fabricated by the dc arc discharge method (ADCNTs) and chemical vapor deposition method (CVDCNTs) were oxidized with concentrated HNO 3 to modify their surface chemistry. The materials were characterized using SEM, TEM, FTIR, XPS, potentiometric titration, and nitrogen adsorption. The initial and oxidized materials were used as adsorbents(More)
Strain sensors with excellent flexibility, stretchability, and sensitivity have attracted increasing interests. In this paper, a highly stretchable and ultrasensitive strain sensor based on reduced graphene oxide microtubes-elastomer is fabricated by a template induced assembly and followed a polymer coating process. The sensors can be stretched in excess(More)
A flexible film electrode is fabricated by growing TiO2 (B) nanosheets on electrospun carbon nanofiber fabric. The hybrid electrode exhibits remarkable electrochemical performance with high reversible capacity, excellent rate capability, and ultralong cycle life for thousands of cycles, which makes it highly attractive for high-power flexible lithium-ion(More)
Dually fixed SnO2 nanoparticles (DF-SnO2 NPs) on graphene nanosheets by a polyaniline (Pani) coating was successfully fabricated via two facile wet chemistry processes, including anchoring SnO2 NPs onto graphene nanosheets via reducing graphene oxide by Sn(2+) ion, followed by in situ surface sealing with the Pani coating. Such a configuration is very(More)
Ag/SiO2 prepared by an in situ reduction method are found, for the first time, to be highly effective and recyclable catalysts for the selective hydrogenation of a range of chloronitrobenzes to their corresponding chloroanilines, which are of great potential as industrially viable and cheap novel catalysts for the production of chloroanilines.
An efficient MRI T2-weighted contrast agent incorporating a potential liver targeting functionality was synthesized via the combination of superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) nanoparticles with multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs). Poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) (PDDA) was coated on the surface of acid treated MWCNTs via electrostatic interactions(More)
