A new family of two-dimensional nanoplatelets composed of NixCo1-x (OH)(OCH3) is synthesized and used in the design and fabrication of hybrid supercapacitors (SCs). The metallic composition is tunable over the entire molar-fraction range (0-1.0), allowing us to optimize their electrochemical performances for high-energy density SCs.

S and Se co-doping leads to excitation wavelength-independent near-infrared emission, a large two-photon absorption cross section, and a high efficiency for the photothermal conversion of C dots (CDs). Thus, the CDs are promising phototheranostic agents for two-photon-excited fluorescence imaging and the photothermal therapy of cancer cells.
