Owing to unique structures and properties, two-dimensional (2D) layered materials have exhibited great potentials for energy storage applications. This review article contains synthesis of graphene, hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) and molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) and detailed discussion about their application in supercapacitor and secondary batteries.

Low-temperature epitaxy of transferable high-quality Pd(111) films is realized on hybrid single-crystal graphene/Cu(111), which can be obtained from commercial polycrystalline Cu foil. This facile production method can be widely applicable to epitaxially grow other metal films, like Au and Ag films.

One-step growth of large-area silicon nanowire fabrics is achieved through a massive metal-assisted chemical vapor deposition method. In addition to intrinsic electronic properties of Si materials, the silicon nanowire fabrics also feature high flexibility, good tailorability and light weight, rendering them ideal for fabricating high-performance multifunctional wearable sensors to detect temperature, light, strain and pressure.

A self-powered electrochemical system (SPECS) is constructed by integrating a rotary triboelectric nanogenerator with an electrochemical cell for hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radical and active chlorine generation. Under the driven of mechanical energy or wind flow, such SPECS can efficiently degrade organic contaminant.

RGO embellished with CoSe2 hollow nanospheres was developed to serve as sulfur host material for advance lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries. Benefitting from the excellent chemical absorption and catalysis properties, CoSe2 hollow nanospheres effectively prevent the diffusion and accelerate the conversion of lithium polysulfides.

After directly injected 10 nm golden nanoparticles (AuNPs) into the tarsal tunnel interstitial architecture of rats, AuNPs can be delivered to the brain bypassing the blood-brain barrier (BBB). With NaGdF4 NPs as agents, the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) results displayed that the agents exited in the perivascular interstitial space of carotid arteries and brain vessels and demonstrated that the transportation to the brain was not through the blood circulation, but based on the interstitial architecture and interstitial stream. This kind of transportation exists throughout the whole body no matter in physiological or pathological status, which is the pathway not only connecting but also with high efficiency.
