Chinese knot-like three-dimensional (3D) TiO2 nanoarchitectures assembled with well-oriented ultrathin nanobelts are rationally synthesized based on epitaxial growth-combined topotactic conversion. The as-prepared 3D TiO2 can be utilized as an anode material for long lifespan and fast-charge lithium ion batteries.

A two-dimensional quasicrystal has been grown from 5-fold symmetric corannulene molecules, via a method that uses the templating effect of the icosahedral Ag-In-Yb substrate through a rational selection of molecular moiety leading to the preferential adsorption of C20H10 molecules with their convex sides down at 5-fold symmetric sites, and hence enforcing long-range quasiperiodic order in the film.

3D mesoporous nickel iron selenide with rose-like microsphere architecture was directly synthesized on Ni foam via a successive two-step hydrothermal method. This system exhibits superior oxygen evolution reaction (OER) electrocatalytic activity, with an ultralow overpotential of 197 mV required to produce a current density of 10 mA·cm−2 in 1 M KOH.

A surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)-active substrate is fabricated by decorating a MoS2 monolayer with Ag nanowire and nanoparticle structures using a spin-coating method. The fabricated SERS substrate exhibits ultrasensitive detection capabilities, reliable reproducibility, and good stability.

Highly biocompatible, yellow-emitting carbon nanodots, which are abundant in hydroxyl functional groups, were synthesized. Interestingly, the nanoparticles display divergent antiproliferative activities against two ovarian choriocarcinoma cell lines, which may be further explored for cancer drug discovery.
