Graphene quantum dots-layered double hydroxide (GQDs-LDH) composites show dual-emission property. This originates from synergistic effects of confinement and rich O-containing functional groups owing to the nanospace confinement and catalysis property of LDHs. GQDsLDHs can potentially be used as a green anti-counterfeiting material.

Using surface controlled PtNi alloy nanoparticles as model catalysts, we propose that the methanol oxidation reaction (MOR) undergoes a Langmuir-Hinshelwood mechanism. Bifunctional catalysts with both CO and OH adsorption sites are beneficial for promoting the MOR in an alkaline electrolyte.

The real-time evolution of C60F18 molecules on a Cu (001) surface was studied by means of scanning tunneling microscopy and ab initio calculations. The results showed that the life-time of fluorinated fullerenes is determined by the density of the two-dimensional (2D) gas phase formed by their decay on a Cu (001) surface occurring as a result of a step-by-step detachment of F atoms from the C60 cage.

The photocatalytically generated H2 from a quantum dot (QD) nanosystem will adsorb and react with palladium/silver nanosheets (Pd/Ag NSs), resulting in a gradual red-shift of localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR), which in turn can be used to assess the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) efficiency of an H2-generating QD system in colloid solutions.
