Spring-like superstructures consisting of layered tin(IV) hydrogen phosphate nanodisks can be obtained via a one-pot solvothermal reaction of tin tetrachloride and phosphoric acid in ethanol. These superstructures are active anode materials for the lithium-ion battery.
A new approach is proposed to synthesize a mesoporous single crystal Ga(2)O(3) nanoplate by heating a single crystal nanoplate of GaOOH, which involves an ion exchange between KGaO(2) and CH(3)COOH at room temperature for the formation of GaOOH and pseudomorphic and topotactic phase transformation from GaOOH to Ga(2)O(3).
The photoelectrodes based on III-nitride semiconductors with high energy conversion efficiency especially for those self-driven ones are greatly desirable for hydrogen generation. In this study, highly ordered InGaN/GaN multiple-quantum-well nanorod-based photoelectrodes have been fabricated by a soft UV-curing nano-imprint lithography and a top-down… (More)
In situ grown nickel sulfide and cobalt sulfide hierarchical nanospheres on F-doped SnO2 (FTO) substrates exhibited comparable catalytic activities to sputtering Pt on the counter electrodes for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). The fresh cells with the nickel sulfide and cobalt sulfide on the counter electrodes could reach power conversion efficiencies… (More)
A novel porous fluorine doped tin oxide (PFTO) conductive framework was introduced to counter electrodes (CEs) for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). When modified by platinum (Pt) or carbon (C), the PFTO conductive framework displays high catalytic activity to I(-)/I3(-) redox couples. Power conversion efficiencies of 6.09% and 5.81% were obtained in the… (More)
Although the crystallographic space group has been determined, detailed first principles calculations of the LaTiO2N semiconductor photocatalyst crystal have not been performed because of the nitrogen/oxygen sosoloid-like anion distribution. In this study, based on the Heyd-Scuseria-Ernzerhof method and experimental anion content, we present the possibility… (More)
For the first time, the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) electrocatalytic performances of incompressible γ-Mo 0.5 W 0.5 C, prepared by high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) synthesis, were investigated in the electrolyte. The polarization curve of the γ-Mo 0.5 W 0.5 C cathode exhibits the current density of 50 mA·cm −2 at an overpotential value of 320 mV.… (More)
