In situ polymerized superhydrophobic and superoleophilic nanofibrous membranes for gravity driven oil-water separation.
The as-prepared membranes exhibited fast and efficient separation of oil-water mixtures by a solely gravity driven process, which makes them good candidates for industrial oil-polluted water treatments and oil spill cleanup, and also provided new insights into the design and development of functional nanofibrous membranes through F-PBZ modification.
Microwave structured polyamide-6 nanofiber/net membrane with embedded poly(m-phenylene isophthalamide) staple fibers for effective ultrafine particle filtration
Effective air filtration proposed for fibers requires their assembly into a porous structure with small pore size, low packing density, and controllable macro-structure; however, creating such
Nanofiber-net-binary structured membranes for highly sensitive detection of trace HCl gas.
Benefiting from the large specific surface area, high porosity, and strong adhesive force to the QCM electrode of the PANI-PA 6 NNB membranes, the developed HCl-selective sensors exhibited a rapid response, good reproducibility and stability, and low detection limit at room temperature.
Gravity driven separation of emulsified oil–water mixtures utilizing in situ polymerized superhydrophobic and superoleophilic nanofibrous membranes
A novel and scalable strategy was developed for the synthesis of in situ polymerized superhydrophobic and superoleophilic nanofibrous membranes for effective separation of water-in-oil
Robust Polyoxometalate/Nickel Foam Composite Electrodes for Sustained Electrochemical Oxygen Evolution at High pH.
A facile one-step hydrothermal route to deposit microcrystals of a robust Dexter-Silverton polyoxometalate oxygen evolution catalyst on a commercial nickel foam electrode is described, providing a blueprint for the stable "wiring" of POM catalysts to commercial metal foam substrates, thus giving access to technologically relevant composite OER electrodes.
Recyclable Saccharomyces cerevisiae loaded nanofibrous mats with sandwich structure constructing via bio-electrospraying for heavy metal removal.
This technique immobilized Saccharomyces cerevisiae onto the surface of poly(ε-caprolactone)/chitosan/rectorite ternary composites based nanofibrous mats and showed that these mats were reusable and maintained high biosorbents capacity after three biosorption-desorption cycles.
Dawson-Type Polyoxomolybdate Anions (P2 Mo18 O626- ) Captured by Ionic Liquid on Graphene Oxide as High-Capacity Anode Material for Lithium-Ion Batteries.
Galvanostatic cycling tests, CV measurements, and AC impedance spectra reveal that the POMs in the GO-IL-P2 Mo18 nanocomposite give an enhanced specific capacity during the Lithium insertion/extraction process, and the IL provides a favored contact between the electrolyte and the electrode.
Facile Preparation of Ultrathin Co3 O4 /Nanocarbon Composites with Greatly Improved Surface Activity as a Highly Efficient Oxygen Evolution Reaction Catalyst.
A new composite material is reported based on ultrathin 2D Co3 O4 nanosheets and reduced graphene oxides (rGO) by means of a one-pot hydrothermal strategy and shows excellent OER performance.

The results indicate that this promising cost-effective sensing system could potentially allow for assaying of Pb²⁺ in human urine or blood as preliminary screening of lead poisoning and the sensitivity of NFN membrane-based strips is much higher than that of film-based ones.
Thermally induced chemical cross-linking reinforced fluorinated polyurethane/polyacrylonitrile/polyvinyl butyral nanofibers for waterproof-breathable application
Electrospun nanofibrous membranes with thin fiber diameter, small pore size, and high porosity have attracted a great deal of attention in the waterproof and breathable field. However, great
