We present a simple but effective approach via promoter assisted liquid phase chemical vapor deposition (CVD) technique, in which the Nb1−xWxSe2 alloy growth is engineered by precisely controlling the quantity ratio of promoter to metal precursor, resulting in a series of monolayer Nb1−xWxSe2 alloy films with fully tunable compositions and centimeter scale on sapphire substrates.

The self-assembly inorganic–organic hybrid 2D materials show untapped potential in different applications. By controlling the coverage of Se atoms, various chiral molecular networks containing Se, Se6, Se8, and terminal alkynes evolved with increasing concentrations of Se atoms on Ag(111). This work opens the new opportunities in achieving advanced hybrid 2D materials with precise control.

Flexible batteries are essential flexible power sources for flexible and wearable electronic devices. An ideal flexible battery should have not only just high electrochemical performance but also excellent mechanical deformabilities, which requires the extensive research on all pivotal aspects of the battery including battery constituent components, chemistry systems, device configurations, and practical applications.

The carbon nanodots (CNDs) with near-infrared (NIR) absorption/ emission are prepared using perilla as precursor, which can identify and inactivate Gram-positive bacteria effectively, and the antibacterial efficiency can reach to 99.99%. The CNDs can be used for elimination inflammation of the area affected by MRSA, enabling the wound to be cured quickly

A simple and green mechanochemical approach was proposed to synthesize zeolitic imidazolate framework precursors for the production of atomically dispersed “Fe-N4” sites in holey carbon nanosheets (SAFe-PCNs) at hectogram level. Benefiting for large specific surface area, abundant lamellar edges, and rich “Fe-N4” active sites, the optimized SAFe-PCNs exhibited superior acidic oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) performance.
