Herein, we report a simple yet efficient self-sacrifice template protocol to smartly fabricate hollow hetero-Ni7S6/Co3S4 nanoboxes (Ni-Co-S NBs). Uniform nickel cobalt carbonate nanocubes are first synthesized as the precursor via solvothermal strategy, and subsequently chemically sulfidized into hollow heter-Ni-Co-S NBs through anion-exchange process.

From the perspective of practical application, the development of fluorescent nanocrystals with low toxicity and desirable optical properties is highly needed. Here we report a new liquid-liquid interfacial synthesis of single-crystalline ZnTe nanorods with high fluorescence. With the use of long-alkyl-chain fatty acid as the capping ligand, the reaction of(More)
Sunlight-driven mesoporous BiVO(4) nanorods with monoclinic structure have been successfully synthesized via a simple hydrothermal method. The as-prepared one-dimensional BiVO(4) nanorods exhibited high specific surface area due to their unique mesoporous structure. The mesoporous BiVO(4) nanorods possessed strong photoabsorption properties in the visible(More)
In the work, a facile and green two-step synthetic strategy was purposefully developed to efficiently fabricate hierarchical shuttle-shaped mesoporous ZnFe2 O4 microrods (MRs) with a high tap density of ∼0.85 g cm(3) , which were assembled by 1D nanofiber (NF) subunits, and further utilized as a long-life anode for advanced Li-ion batteries. The significant(More)
We have purposefully developed a smart template-engaged methodology to efficiently fabricate well-defined ternary spinel ZnMn2 O4 hollow nanotubes (NTs). The procedure involves coating carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with ZnMn2 O4 nanosheets (NSs), followed by heating at high temperature in air to oxidize the CNT template. Physicochemical characterization(More)
Mesoporous hetero-structures have drawn tremendous attention due to their unprecedented inherent advantages in advanced Li-ion batteries (LIBs). In this study, we developed a facile metal-organic-framework-engaged synthetic methodology for large-scale fabrication of two-dimensional (2D) mesoporous hetero-ZnFe2O4/ZnO nanosheets (ZFOZ NSs) with homogeneously(More)
In this study, we rationally designed a rapid, low-temperature yet general synthetic methodology for the first time, involving in situ growth of two-dimensional (2D) birnessite-type MnO2 nanosheets (NSs) upon each carbon nanotube (CNT), and we designed the subsequent phase transformation into untrathin mesoporous ZnMn2O4 NSs with a thickness of ∼2-3 nm at(More)
In this work, poly(sodium-4-styrene sulfonate) (PSS)-functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes (FMWCNTs) were first synthesized via a polymer-assisted technique. Then, Ru(0.58)In(0.42)O(y)⋅nH(2)O nanoparticles (NPs) were mono-dispersed onto the FMWCNTs surfaces under mild hydrothermal condition. Here, PSS with negative charge serves as a bifunctional(More)
A novel, designed sulfur-impregnated mesoporous hollow TiO2 sphere cathode with a 68 wt% S loading was efficiently tailored for advanced Li-S batteries, and yielded an intriguing capacity retention (71%) and a high coulombic efficiency (93%) over 100 cycles, at a 1 C rate.
We report a new available strategy for fabricating 2-dimensional petal-like CdS/dodecylamine (DDA) hybrids with enhanced photoluminescence (PL) by using a method of oil/water interfacial self-assembly. First, water-soluble CdS nanocrystals (NCs) were controllably prepared at the two-phase interface by injecting the Na2S solution into CCl4 phase. And then,(More)
