Summary of "Covalently Connected Nb4N5-xOx-MoS2 Heterocatalysts with Desired Electron Density to Boost Hydrogen Evolution."

Rational design and controllable synthesis of efficient and robust electrocatalysts for hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) remain a critical challenge for the renewable energy economy. Herein, heterostructured Nb4N5-xOx-MoS2 (0chemical vapor deposition (CVD) approaches. During CVD process, MoS2 nanosheets are etched into small pieces and covalently interconnected with Nb4N5-xOx to form fine Nb4N5-xOx-MoS2 heterostructures, which possess abundant interfaces and fully exposed edge active sites. The as-prepared Nb4N5-xOx-MoS2 heterostructures with Nb-(N, S)-Mo bridges provide desired electron density, which exhibit excellent chemisorption ability for both H and water, significantly improving the intrinsic HER activity. Meantime, the covalently connected Nb4N5-xOx-MoS2 heterostructures together with chemical coupling of Nb4N5-xOx-MoS2 and N-doped graphene improve the structural stability and ensure fast electron transfer in Nb4N5-xOx-MoS2/NG nanocomposite, further cooperating the H2 generation and stability.

Controlled Covalent Functionalization of 2H-MoS2 with Molecular or Polymeric Adlayers.

Air-stable 2D materials are relatively inert, which makes their chemical modification difficult. In the case of MoS2, the semiconducting 2H-MoS2 is much less reactive than its metallic counterpart, 1...

Ping-pong intercomponent energy transfer in covalently linked porphyrin-MoS2 architectures.

Molybdenum disulfide nanosheets covalently modified with porphyrin were prepared and fully characterized. Neither the porphyrin absorption nor its fluorescence was notably impacted by covalent linkage...

Coupled plasmon-phonon modes in monolayer MoS2.

We present a theoretical study of the plasmon-phonon coupling in a suspended monolayer MoS2 and a MoS2 substrate system using a diagrammatic selfconsistent field theory. The four coupled plasmon-phono...

Phase-dependent gas sensitivity of MoS2 chemical sensors investigated with phase-locked MoS2.

In the present study, phase-dependent gas sensitivities of MoS2 chemical sensors were examined. While 1T-phase MoS2 (1T-MoS2) has shown better chemical sensitivity than has 2H-phase MoS2 (2H-MoS2), th...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Microscopy using an electron beam, instead of light, to visualize the sample, thereby allowing much greater magnification. The interactions of ELECTRONS with specimens are used to provide information about the fine structure of that specimen. In TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen are imaged. In SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY an electron beam falls at a non-normal angle on the specimen and the image is derived from the reactions occurring above the plane of the specimen.

A type of TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY in which the object is examined directly by an extremely narrow electron beam scanning the specimen point-by-point and using the reactions of the electrons that are transmitted through the specimen to create the image. It should not be confused with SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY.

Identification and measurement of ELEMENTS and their location based on the fact that X-RAYS emitted by an element excited by an electron beam have a wavelength characteristic of that element and an intensity related to its concentration. It is performed with an electron microscope fitted with an x-ray spectrometer, in scanning or transmission mode.

A technique for analysis of the chemical composition of molecules. A substance is bombarded with monochromatic ELECTRONS. Some of the electrons passing through the specimen will lose energy when they ionize inner shell electrons of the atoms in the specimen. The energy loss is element dependent. Analysis of the energy loss spectrum reveals the elemental composition of a specimen. ENERGY-FILTERED TRANSMISSION ELECTRON MICROSCOPY is a type of electron energy loss spectroscopy carried out in electron microscopes specially outfitted to analyze the spectrum of electron energy loss.

A tomographic technique for obtaining 3-dimensional images with transmission electron microscopy.
