It will be demonstrated that the HTC process can rationally design a rich family of carbonaceous and hybrid functional carbon materials with important applications in a sustainable fashion.
A Flexible and Highly Pressure‐Sensitive Graphene–Polyurethane Sponge Based on Fractured Microstructure Design
A new type of piezoresistive sensor with ultra-high-pressure sensitivity in low pressure range and minimum detectable pressure of 9 Pa has been fabricated using a fractured microstructure design in a graphene-nanosheet-wrapped polyurethane (PU) sponge.
A Direct Synthesis of Mesoporous Carbons with Bicontinuous Pore Morphology from Crude Plant Material by Hydrothermal Carbonization
Hydrothermal carbonization is a convenient way to convert biomass at rather moderate conditions into carbonaceous nanostructures, here, mesoporous network structures. A structural view on the micro-…
From Bimetallic Metal‐Organic Framework to Porous Carbon: High Surface Area and Multicomponent Active Dopants for Excellent Electrocatalysis
The optimized carbon with additional phosphorus dopant exhibits excellent electrocatalytic performance for the oxygen reduction reaction, which is much better than the benchmark Pt/C in alkaline media.
An efficient molybdenum disulfide/cobalt diselenide hybrid catalyst for electrochemical hydrogen generation
A robust and highly active catalyst for hydrogen evolution reaction that is constructed by in situ growth of molybdenum disulfide on the surface of cobalt diselenide, which is the best among the non-noble metal hydrogen evolution catalysts and even approaches to the commercial platinum/carbon catalyst.
Flexible graphene–polyaniline composite paper for high-performance supercapacitor
Free-standing graphene paper with a grey metallic luster has been fabricated for the first time, by a convenient one-step method on a large scale. Herein, the assembly of graphene oxide dispersion…
Facile synthesis of silver@graphene oxide nanocomposites and their enhanced antibacterial properties
Uniform and water-soluble Ag@reduced graphene oxide (Ag@rGO) nanocomposites can be prepared by a facile approach in the absence of additional reductants, which display much better antibacterial…
Porous Molybdenum-Based Hybrid Catalysts for Highly Efficient Hydrogen Evolution.
MoO2 @PC-RGO hybrid material derived from the POMOFs/GO composite is prepared at a relatively low carbonization temperature, which presents a superior activity for the hydrogen-evolution reaction (HER) in acidic media owing to the synergistic effects among highly dispersive MoO2 particles, phosphorus-doped porous carbon, and RGO substrates.
Synthesis of an attapulgite clay@carbon nanocomposite adsorbent by a hydrothermal carbonization process and their application in the removal of toxic metal ions from water.
The results demonstrate that this nanocomposite is an exceptionally promising candidate as a low-cost, sustainable, and effective adsorbent for the removal of toxic ions from water.
Steering post-C–C coupling selectivity enables high efficiency electroreduction of carbon dioxide to multi-carbon alcohols
AbstractEngineering copper-based catalysts that favour high-value alcohols is desired in view of the energy density, ready transport and established use of these liquid fuels. In the design of…
