Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) graphene prepared on Cu foil is frequently transferred to a different substrate by a poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA)-assisted transfer process which leaves polymer residuals on graphene. This review discusses ways to reduce and minimize contaminants in order to obtain clean graphene samples that are critically important for both fundamental studies and device applications.

Edge band bending and edge energy gap are various in p(n) doped MoS2/WS2 vdW heterojunctions. As Fermi level rises from conduct band minimum (CBM) to valence band maximum (VBM), metal terminated edge band bending shifts from upward to downward, but S terminated edge band bending stays upward. In addition, as the edge band bending evolves, the band gap keeps comparably stable and shows no regularity.

A facile and general "surface curvature-confined synthesis" strategy is developed to modulate the slab lengths and stacking numbers of a series of molybdenum- and tungsten-based sulfides by controlling the strain induced by different surface curvature of nanosized ZSM-5 supports. Notably, NiMoSx/ZSM-5-100 catalyst with smaller slab lengths, lower stacking numbers, and more edge active sites shows superior kHDS value of dibenzothiophene (14.05℅ 10−7 mol/(g﹞s)) and high direct desulfurization selectivity (> 95%).
