Outstanding pristine properties of carbon nanotubes and graphene have limited the scope for real-life applications without precise controllability of the material structures and properties. This invited article to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Advanced Materials reviews the current research status in the chemical modification/doping of carbon nanotubes(More)
Cost effective hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) catalyst without using precious metallic elements is a crucial demand for environment-benign energy production. Molybdenum sulfide is one of the promising candidates for such purpose, particularly in acidic condition, but its catalytic performance is inherently limited by the sparse catalytic edge sites and(More)
Substitutional heteroatom doping is a promising route to modulate the outstanding material properties of carbon nanotubes and graphene for customized applications. Recently, (nitrogen-) N-doping has been introduced to ensure tunable work-function, enhanced n-type carrier concentration, diminished surface energy, and manageable polarization. Along with the(More)
DOI: 10.1002/adma.201303503 Assembly of graphene into functional macroscopic objects, such as fi lms, [ 1 ] sheets, [ 2 ] fi bers, [ 3 ] foams, [ 4,5 ] and other complex architectures, [ 6 ] is of enormous research interest. How to attain desired structures in a cost effective and manufacturable manner is crucial for energy harvest/storage, catalysis,(More)
Graphene offers great promise to complement the inherent limitations of silicon electronics. To date, considerable research efforts have been devoted to complementary p- and n-type doping of graphene as a fundamental requirement for graphene-based electronics. Unfortunately, previous efforts suffer from undesired defect formation, poor controllability of(More)
A scalable and controllable nanoscale perforation method for graphene is developed on the basis of the two-step thermal activation of a graphene aerogel. Different resistance to the thermal oxidation between graphitic and defective domains in the weakly reduced graphene oxide is exploited for the self-limiting nanoscale perforation in the graphene basal(More)
Graphene oxide (GO) is aqueous-dispersible oxygenated graphene, which shows colloidal discotic liquid crystallinity. Many properties of GO-based materials, including electrical conductivity and mechanical properties, are limited by the small flake size of GO. Unfortunately, typical sonochemical exfoliation of GO from graphite generally leads to a broad size(More)
Electrochemical oxygen redox reactions are the crucial elements for energy conversion and storage including fuel cells and metal air batteries. Despite tremendous research efforts, developing high-efficient, low-cost, and durable bifunctional oxygen catalysts remains a major challenge. We report a new class of hybrid material consisting of subnanometer(More)
Directed self-assembly of a block copolymer is successfully employed to fabricate device-oriented graphene nanostructures from CVD grown graphene. We implemented mussel-inspired polydopamine adhesive in conjunction with the graphoepitaxy principle to tailor graphene nanoribbon arrays and a graphene nanomesh located between metal electrodes. Polydopamine(More)
A flexible cold cathode based on a uniform array of ZnO nanowires over carbon fabrics was designed via a simple wet chemical route. The structural parameters of the nanowires (i.e. length, diameter) as well as their arrangement over the carbon fibers were tailored by adjusting nutrient solution composition and growth duration. The optimized arrays of ZnO(More)
