By using an isotopic-pulse labeling technique in conjunction with micro-Raman spectroscopy identification, we visualized the growth dynamics regarding the nucleation, growth, and coalescence during the fast growth of large single-crystalline graphene domains. A high growth rate of 320 米m/min for the growth of millimeter-sized graphene on Cu foil was realized by tuning the carbon-source supply.

In this study, an Ir/Ce0.9La0.1O2 catalyst showed higher activity and stabler performance for methane dry reforming reaction than the Ir/CeO2 catalyst. The observation was attributed to the stronger metal每support interaction in the Ir/Ce0.9La0.1O2 catalyst stabilizing the catalyst structure and improving the oxygen storage capacity, leading to negligible aggregation of Ir nanoparticles and the Ce0.9La0.1O2 support at high temperatures, as well as the rapid removal of carbon deposits at the Ir-Ce0.9La0.1O2 boundaries.

Crystallographic behaviors of PbZr1每xTixO3 (PZT) thin film caused by modified interfacial effects are thoroughly studied by integrated perspectives from ab initio physical modeling to experimental demonstration; these behaviors can significantly increase the performance of flexible energy harvesters by ~500%, compared to single crystal slaps. Phase balance and crystallinity, as well as the crystal orientation of PZT film at morphotropic phase boundary (MPB), can be clearly modulated by nanointerfacial structure and polarization.

A new in situ surface polymerization method free of extra surfactants and oxidizing agents was developed for the controlled synthesis of iron oxide@conjugated polymer nanoparticles (NPs) with an adjustable size, shape, and shell thickness. The obtained iron oxide@poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(4-styrenesulfonate) (PEDOT:PSS) NPs had balanced, prominent magneto-optical properties and exhibited an excellent hyperthermal therapeutic effect under multimodal imaging-guiding in vivo.

Room-temperature large edge ferromagnetism arises from Oterminated zigzag pore edges of few-layer black P nanomeshes (BPNMs), which consist of a honeycomb-like array of hexagonal nanopores formed by a non-lithographic method. The observed magnetization values (per unit area) are ~100 times larger than those reported for H-terminated graphene NMs, while the magnetism disappears for H-terminated BPNMs. Ferromagnetic spin coupling of the edge P=O bond and interlayer spin interaction cause large magnetism.
