2D MoSe2 flakes with screw dislocations are grown on amorphous SiO2 substrates by chemical vapor deposition (CVD). Our work demonstrates that the interlayer coupling of 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs) flakes can be tuned by the induction of screw dislocations.

By revisiting the long-held axiom that hydrolyzed non-porous metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are impractical materials due to the severe structural change, the potential of hydrolyzed MOFs as a useful precursor for MOF-derived materials is revealed.

MgTi2O5 with wide bandgap and very negative conduction band was utilized as a platform for accepting the visible-light excited photoelectrons from g-C3N4, resulting in the enhanced charge separation, maintained thermodynamic energy of the electrons and the promoted photoactivity for solar energy conversion.

Vesicular Li3V2(PO4)3/C hollow mesoporous microspheres are synthesized through a facile approach. The composites display a high discharge capacity of 207.6 mAh·g−1 (100 mA·g−1), 204.1 mAh·g−1 (200 mA·g−1), and 180.9 mAh·g−1 (400 mA·g−1) and maintain at 156.1, 146.9, and 131.3 mAh·g−1, respectively, after cycling for 200 times.

PEDOT:PSS/GQDs OECTs with the channel length of about 8 µm and the channel height of about 200 nm were fabricated in situ on the microfluidic chip by AC electrodeposition. In situ characterizations further demonstrated that the maximum transconductance, the on/off current ratio and the threshold voltage was 1.58 ms, 246, and 0.269 V, respectively.
