Supercapacitors (also known as ultracapacitors) are considered to be the most promising approach to meet the pressing requirements of energy storage. Supercapacitive electrode materials, which are closely related to the high-efficiency storage of energy, have provoked more interest. Herein, we present a high-capacity supercapacitor material based on the(More)
Nanocontainers have great potentials in targeted drug delivery and nanospace-confined reactions. However, the previous synthetic approaches exhibited limited control over the morphology, size and materials of the nanocontainers, which are crucial in practical applications. Here, we present a synthetic approach to multi-segment linear-shaped nanopores with(More)
Controlling the synthesis of atomic-thick nanosheets of nonlayered materials is extremely challenging because of the lack of an intrinsic driving force for anisotropic growth of two-dimensional (2D) structures. In that case, control of the anisotropy such as oriented attachment of small building blocks during the reaction process will be an effective way to(More)
To detect polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), a prototype of a porous ZnO sensor based on the surface photovoltage (SPV) mechanism working under visible light illumination at room temperature has been presented. The SPV of the porous ZnO sensor can be remarkably reduced under visible light illumination after PCB adsorption, and the reduction of amplitude is(More)
Silicon, being in the same group in the periodic table as carbon, plays a key role in modern semiconductor industry. However, unlike carbon nanotube (NT), progress remains relatively slow in silicon NT (SiNT) and SiNT-based heteroarchitectures, which would be the fundamental building blocks of various nanoscale circuits, devices, and systems. Here, we(More)
Nanostructured Ag nanoparticles (Ag-NPs)/nanoporous ZnO micrometer-rods (n-ZnO MRs) have been synthesized by a two-step method. The n-ZnO MRs was initially prepared by solvothermal-assisted heat treatment. The rods had the diameter ranged from 90 to 150 nm and length between 0.5 and 3 μm. They were found to be porous and were composited of ZnO nanopartiles(More)
An effective approach has been demonstrated for the synthesis of novel composite architectures, SiO2 nanowires (NWs) growing on hexagonally arranged circular patterns surrounded by TiO2 films on Si substrate. First, a solution-dipping template strategy is used to create TiO2 films with hexagonally arranged pores on Au-coated Si substrate, resulting in(More)
Porous anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) templates were prepared by a two-step anodization process, then chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method was used to prepare well-aligned open-ended multiwall carbon nanotube (MWCNT) arrays in the AAO templates that also served as catalyst. Gas ionization sensors were fabricated using the MWCNT arrays. The gas ionization(More)
