MoS2 nanosheets with 1T (octahedral) phase have been demonstrated as a co-catalyst for integration with photocatalyst TiO2. The developed hybrid structure exhibits excellent performance, in sharp contrast to bare TiO2 and the hybrid counterpart with 2H-MoS2, in both photocatalytic hydrogen production and Rhodamine B degradation.

SnO2@3DG has been explored as the anode material of rechargeable Na-ion batteries, showing a discharge capacity of 1,155 mA·h·g–1 in the first cycle at 100 mA·g–1 and a capacity retention of 85.7% from the second cycle (504 mA·h·g–1) to the 200th cycle (432 mA·h·g–1).

Mesocrystal nanosheets of vanadium nitride (VN) are fabricated via a confined-growth route from thermally stable layered vanadium bronze for the first time. VN mesocrystal nanosheets with facet- tunable building blocks bring synergic advantages of unprecedentedly high electrical conductivity and unique pseudocapacitive reactivity, giving a superior specific volumetric capacitance in all-solid-state thin-film supercapacitors.

Oxygen intercalation at BN/Ru(0001) interface occurs at BN islands in 10–8 Torr O2 and on full BN layer in 0.1 Torr O2, which decouples the BN overlayer from the substrate and simultaneously oxidizes the metal surface.

Magnetic yolk–shell structured anatase-based microspheres were fabricated through successive and facile sol–gel coating on magnetite particles, followed by annealing treatments. Upon loading with gold nanoparticles, the obtained functional magnetic microspheres showed superior performance as stable heterogeneous catalysts in catalyzing the epoxidation of styrene with extraordinary high conversion (89.5%) and selectivity (90.8%) towards styrene oxide after reaction for 33 h.
