Typical naphthalic anhydride molecules are synthesized, which serve as surface ligands for the production of ligand-capped small-sized SiNPs. Quantum yield (QY) of the resultant SiNPs are relatively low, but could be greatly enhanced from ~10% to ~50% through the SPIPE strategy. Taken together with the theoretical calculation and the results of time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC), we reveal that activated excited-state charge transfer (CT) interactions between surface-covered ligand and silicon oxide coating would be responsible for the observed QY enhancement.

Hexagonal PtBi/Pt core/shell nanostructures composed of an intermetallic Pt1Bi1 core and an ultrathin Pt shell with well-defined shape, size, and composition have been prepared. The unique structure and the synergistic effect among different components dramatically enhanced their methanol oxidation reaction (MOR) and ethanol oxidation reaction (EOR) performance.

We report a polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP)-assisted route to synthesize the ultrathin Ni-MOF nanosheets characteristic of 1.5 nm in thickness. Notably, they display the significantly enhanced catalytic activity in the Knoevenagel condensation of propane dinitrile with different aldehydes compared with bulk Ni-MOF.

Since its discovery, the direct imaging and determination of the crystal structure of few-layer graphdiyne has proven difficult. In this work, we successfully employed low-voltage transmission electron microscopy with low current density to realize the direct imaging of graphdiyne and confirmed that the structure of an as-synthesized graphdiyne nanosheet is crystalline, with six-layer thickness and ABC stacking.

With a thin Ag shell coated on spiky Au nanoparticles, the spiky Au@Ag core-shell nanostructures demonstrate remarkable localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) in near infrared region and improved surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) activity due to the sharp tips, making it a promising platform for SERS-based detection applications.

We controlled the Pt-shell thickness of fully L10-ordered face-centered tetragonal (fct) FePt nanoparticles (NPs) by using several acids with different acid strengths for surface-Fe etching and studied the effects of both surface-Fe etching and Pt-shell thickness on the electrocatalytic properties of fct-FePt NPs for the methanol oxidation reaction (MOR).

A visible-light-response single atom catalyst with single titanium oxide species implanted in graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) has been developed for efficient CO2 photo-reduction for the first time. The synergistic interaction between single titanium oxide species and g-C3N4 has greatly enhanced the separation of photo-excited charges and brought about visible-light-response single titanium-oxide species, realizing high photo-reduction of CO2 activity with extremely high CO evolution.
