Advanced materials for electrocatalytic and photoelectrochemical water splitting are central to the area of renewable energy. In this work, we developed a selective solvothermal synthesis of MoS(2) nanoparticles on reduced graphene oxide (RGO) sheets suspended in solution. The resulting MoS(2)/RGO hybrid material possessed nanoscopic few-layer MoS(2)(More)
We report the synthesis of a graphene-sulfur composite material by wrapping poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) coated submicrometer sulfur particles with mildly oxidized graphene oxide sheets decorated by carbon black nanoparticles. The PEG and graphene coating layers are important to accommodating volume expansion of the coated sulfur particles during discharge,(More)
Highly active, durable, and cost-effective electrocatalysts for water oxidation to evolve oxygen gas hold a key to a range of renewable energy solutions, including water-splitting and rechargeable metal-air batteries. Here, we report the synthesis of ultrathin nickel-iron layered double hydroxide (NiFe-LDH) nanoplates on mildly oxidized multiwalled carbon(More)
Let F be a C 3 diffeomorphism on a Banach space B. F has a homoclinic tube asymptotic to an invariant manifold. Around the homoclinic tube, Bernoulli shift dynamics of submanifolds is established through shadowing lemma. This work removes an uncheckable condition of Silnikov [Equation Also, the result of Silnikov does not imply Bernoulli shift dynamics of a(More)
We investigated the chlorine plasma reaction with graphene and graphene nanoribbons and compared it with the hydrogen and fluorine plasma reactions. Unlike the rapid destruction of graphene by hydrogen and fluorine plasmas, much slower reaction kinetics between the chlorine plasma and graphene were observed, allowing for controlled chlorination. Electrical(More)
Silicon's sensitivity to corrosion has hindered its use in photoanode applications. We found that deposition of a ~2-nanometer nickel film on n-type silicon (n-Si) with its native oxide affords a high-performance metal-insulator-semiconductor photoanode for photoelectrochemical (PEC) water oxidation in both aqueous potassium hydroxide (KOH, pH = 14) and(More)
High-throughput screening for interactions of peptides with a variety of antibody targets could greatly facilitate proteomic analysis for epitope mapping, enzyme profiling, drug discovery and biomarker identification. Peptide microarrays are suited for such undertaking because of their high-throughput capability. However, existing peptide microarrays lack(More)
