We report a facile approach to prepare carbon-coated troilite FeS (C@FeS) nanosheets via surfactant-assisted solution-based synthesis. 1-Dodecanethiol is used as both the sulfur source and the surfactant, which may form different-shaped micelles to direct the growth of nanostructures. Under appropriate growth conditions, the iron and sulfur atoms react to(More)
A facile and general method is reported to prepare ordered porous graphene-based binder-free electrodes on a large scale. This preparation process allows the easy adjustment of the selected components, weight ratio of componets, and the thickness of the electrodes. Such ordered porous electrodes demonstrate superior Li storage properties; for example,(More)
With the increased demand in energy resources, great efforts have been devoted to developing advanced energy storage and conversion systems. Graphene and graphene-based materials have attracted great attention owing to their unique properties of high mechanical flexibility, large surface area, chemical stability, superior electric and thermal conductivities(More)
Various two-dimensional (2D) materials have recently attracted great attention owing to their unique properties and wide application potential in electronics, catalysis, energy storage, and conversion. However, large-scale production of ultrathin sheets and functional nanosheets remains a scientific and engineering challenge. Here we demonstrate an(More)

Intercalation and exfoliation of lithium: Few-layer-thick inorganic nanosheets (BN, NbSe(2), WSe(2), Sb(2)Se(3), and Bi(2)Te(3)) have been prepared from their layered bulk precursors by using a controllable electrochemical lithium intercalation process. The lithium intercalation conditions, such as cut-off voltage and discharge current, have been(More)
Ultrathin metal sulphide nanomaterials exhibit many unique properties, and are thus attractive materials for numerous applications. However, the high-yield, large-scale synthesis of well-defined ultrathin metal sulphide nanostructures by a general and facile wet-chemical method is yet to be realized. Here we report a universal soft colloidal templating(More)
The synthesis of vertically aligned functional graphitic carbon nanosheets (CNS) is challenging. Herein, we demonstrate a general approach for the fabrication of vertically aligned CNS and metal carbide@CNS composites via a facile salt templating induced self-assembly. The resulting vertically aligned CNS and metal carbide@CNS structures possess ultrathin(More)
We report an environment-friendly approach to synthesize transition metal oxide nanoparticles (NPs)/reduced graphene oxide (rGO) sheets hybrids by combining the reduction of graphene oxide (GO) with the growth of metal oxide NPs in one step. Either Fe2O3 or CoO NPs were grown onto rGO sheets in ethanol solution through a solvothermal process, during which(More)
The thermal conduction of suspended few-layer h-BN sheets was experimentally investigated using a noncontact micro-Raman spectroscopy method. The first-order temperature coefficients for 1L, 2L and 9L h-BN sheets were measured to be – (3.41 ± 0.12) × 10-2, – (3.15 ± 0.14) × 10-2 and – (3.78 ± 0.16) × 10-2 cm-1/K, respectively. The room-temperature thermal(More)
Reduced graphene oxide (rGO) supported highly porous polycrystalline V(2)O(5) spheres (V(2)O(5)/rGO) were prepared by using a solvothermal approach followed by an annealing process. Initially, reduced vanadium oxide (rVO) nanoparticles with sizes in the range of 10-50 nm were formed through heterogeneous nucleation on rGO sheets during the solvothermal(More)
