Gold vapor was introduced into the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process as a catalyst to assist the growth of WSe2. Highly aligned monolayer WSe2 triangular flakes with large domain size (130 μm) and fast growth rate (4.3 μm·s−1), and continuous monolayer films with good uniformity were achieved.

The near-infrared IIb (NIR-IIb) excitable deep-red emissive semiconducting polymer dots (P-dots) with bright three-photon fluorescence (3PF) under 1,550 nm fetmosecond laser excitation were prepared and functionalized. Then the P-dots were utilized for in vivo 3PF cerebral vasculature microscopic imaging of mice with and without the brain skull.

Kirkendall effect unexpectedly takes place when diffusing intrinsically faster Cu atoms into Pd icosahedra. The strain gradient arising from the multiple twins of the icosahedra is the key to drive such Kirkendall effect, leading to the formation of hollow structures.

The functional integrated visible light photocatalyst for CO2 reduction was prepared by combining homogeneous catalyst metalloporphyrin CoTDPP with the heterogeneous photosensitizer graphitic carbon nitride via covalent bonding. The strong interaction between catalyst unit and photosensitizer unit is conductive to the separation and migration of photogenerated charge carriers and the metalloporphyrin CoTDPP not only provides single site catalytic center but also effectively broadens the visible light absorption range of the functional integrated photocatalyst. The g-CNU-CoTDPP exhibited excellent photocatalytic performance for CO2 reduction with CO as the major product at an average evolution rate of 57 μmol/(g·h) and the selectivity of 79% over competing H2 evolution.

VSe2 ultrafine nanocrystals immobilized on the nitrogen-doped graphene hybrid nanosheets (VSe2 NC@NG) as a new polysulfides barrier are synthesized via a self-template strategy, which possess more exposed sulfiphilic planes of VSe2, as well as benefit the uniform nucleation of Li2S – making this system an excellent polysulfides barrier for lithium–sulfur batteries.
