Among recent advances in electronic packaging technologies, electrically conductive adhesives (ECAs) attract most researchers' attention, as they are environment-friendly and simple to apply. ECAs also have a lower operating temperature and volume resistivity compared with conventional electronic conductive adhesives. In ECAs, the conducting fillers play a significant role in improving conductivity and strength. In this work, as filler additives, the silver nanowires/graphene nanocomposites (AgNWs-GNs) were successfully fabricated via a facile self-assembly method...

Two-dimensional transition metal carbides/carbonitrides (MXenes) networks with both superb electrical conductivity and hydrophilicity are promising for fabricating multifunctional nanomaterials and nanocomposites. However, construction of three-dimensional (3D) and lightweight MXene macroscopic assemblies with excellent electrical conductivity and mechanical performances has not been realized due to the weak gelation capability of MXene sheets. Herein, we demonstrate an efficient approach for constructing highly conductive 3D Ti3C2Tx porous architectures by graphene oxide-assisted hydrothermal assembly followed by directional-freezing and freeze-drying...

Carbon materials such as graphene and graphene nanoribbon with zigzag and armchair edges have attracted much attention because of various applications such as electronics, batteries, adsorbents, and catalyst supports. Preparation of carbon materials with different edge structure at large scale is essential for the future of carbon materials, but it is generally difficult and expensive because of the necessity of organic synthesis on metal substrates. This work demonstrated a simple preparation method of carbon materials with zigzag and armchair edges with/without non-metallic silica supports from aromatic compounds such as tetracene with zigzag edges and chrysene with armchair edges and also determined the edge structures in detail by three types of analyses such as (1) reactive molecular dynamic simulation (ReaxFF), (2) Raman and infrared (IR) spectra combined with calculation of spectra, and (3) reactivity analyzed by oxidative gasification using thermogravimetric analysis...

Metal-free heterogeneous carbon-based materials have the potential to facilitate a wide range of organic transformations in an economical and environmentally-friendly manner. Often times, however, the mechanism of their action is obfuscated by their ill-defined nature, so careful analysis of the reaction products is essential before they can be labelled 'catalysts' according to IUPAC's definition. We present here our findings on the archetypal 'carbocatalytic' conversion of benzyl alcohol to benzaldehyde, in which graphene oxide is reduced and a major side product - dibenzyl ether, is also formed...

By utilizing the synergistic effect of chitosan (CS), magnetite (Fe3 O4 ) particles, and graphene oxide (GO), a series of efficient and eco-friendly chitosan/magnetite-graphene oxide (CS/MGO) composites were fabricated through a facile chemical route. First, Fe3 O4 particles were chemically deposited on the surface of GO to fabricate MGO hybrid. Then, chitosan was attached on MGO sheets, assembling to CS/MGO composites. According to the results of characterization, the covalent Fe-O-C bonds, electrostatic attraction, and hydrogen bonding between GO, Fe3 O4 , and chitosan ensure excellent structural stability and physico-chemical properties...

The roles of Al2O3 particles with different morphologies in altering graphene oxide (GO) toxicity to Chlorella pyrenoidosa were investigated. Algal growth inhibition by GO with co-existing Al2O3 particles was much lower than the sum of inhibitions from the individual materials for all the three Al2O3, showing the toxicity mitigation by Al2O3. The lowest GO toxicity was observed at the concentrations of 300, 150 and 100 mg/L for Al2O3 nanoparticles (NPs, 8-10 nm), bulk particles (BPs, 100-300 nm), and fibers (diameter: 10 nm; length: 400 nm), respectively...

Polyethylene glycol (PEG)/hybrid carbon foam (CF) phase change materials (PCMs) were prepared by integrating PEG into CF via dynamic-vacuum impregnation. The hybrid CF was first synthesized by mixtures of graphene oxide (GO) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with different volume ratios. The morphologies, chemical structures, thermal conductivities, shape-stabilization levels, and photo-thermal energy conversion levels of these composite PCMs were characterized systematically. The prepared composite PCMs exhibited good shape-stabilization levels and showed their original shapes without any PEG leakage...

Coal tar pitch (CTP), a by-product of coking industry, has a unique molecule structure comprising an aromatic nucleus and several side chains bonding on this graphene-like nucleus, which is very similar to the structure of graphene quantum dots (GQDs). Based on this perception, we develop a facile approach to convert CTP to GQDs only by oxidation with hydrogen peroxide under mild conditions. One to three graphene layers, monodisperse GQDs with a narrow size distribution of 1.7 ± 0.4 nm, are obtained at high yield (more than 80 wt...

Z-scheme photocatalyst g-C3 N4 /RGO/WO3 with reduced graphene oxide (RGO) as the electron mediator was synthesized via a facile photoreduction method. According the results of photoluminescence (PL), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and photocurrent response, g-C3 N4 /RGO/WO3 presents more efficient separation of charges and enhanced electronic mobility than g-C3 N4 /WO3 , g-C3 N4 and WO3 , which benefits from the excellent electron transfer property of RGO. Reactive species trapping experiments and electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) test demonstrated that superoxide radical (O2 - ) and hydroxyl radical (OH) were produced because of the high redox capacities caused by the unique transfer behaviors of charges in Z-scheme photocatalyst g-C3 N4 /RGO/WO3 ...

This paper reports the effect of graphene encapsulation on the thermal stability of DNA nanostructures and the thermal oxidation of graphene in the presence of DNA nanostructures. Triangular-shaped DNA nanostructures were deposited onto a Si/SiO2 substrate and covered with single-layer graphene. The apparent height of the DNA nanostructure significantly decreased upon thermal annealing at 250 °C and higher temperatures. The topographical features of the DNA nanostructure, as measured by atomic force microscopy (AFM), disappeared after annealing at 300 °C for 5 h but reappeared after 23 h...

It is urgent to develop a rapid, reliable and in-site determination method to detect or monitor trace amounts of toxic substances in the field. Here, we report an alternative surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) method coupled with a portable Raman device on a plasmonic three-dimension (3D) hot spots sensing surface. Plasmonic AgNPs were uniformly deposited on a 3D TiO2 nanopore arrays as sensitive SERS substrate, and further coated with graphene oxide (GO). We demonstrate the plasmon-induced SERS enhancement (5...

In this work, we report a low-cost and easy operation biosensor platform capable of detection of various analytes with high sensitivity and good selectivity. By ingeniously assigning the specific aptamer into a primer-template integrated DNA template, and using monolayer graphene oxide as a reversible and nonspecific inhibitor, the simple biosensor platform is set up. Without target, DNA template is constrained by the graphene oxide sheet and result in low signal. In the presence of target, the constrained DNA template is released from the graphene oxide surface via target-induced aptamer conformational change, and further amplified through the improved strand displacement amplification reaction...

Optical ignition of solid energetic materials, which can rapidly release heat, gas, and thrust, is still challenging due to the limited light absorption and high ignition energy of typical energetic materials ( e.g., aluminum, Al). Here, we demonstrated that the optical ignition and combustion properties of micron-sized Al particles were greatly enhanced by adding only 20 wt % of graphene oxide (GO). These enhancements are attributed to the optically activated disproportionation and oxidation reactions of GO, which release heat to initiate the oxidization of Al by air and generate gaseous products to reduce the agglomeration of the composites and promote the pressure rise during combustion...

Strength and toughness are usually exclusive in polymer nanocomposites with dispersed nanofillers. This intrinsic conflict has been relieved in high filler loading range by mimicking nacre structure of natural selection. However, at the low loading extreme, it still remains a great challenge. Here, we design a bi-continuous laminar (BCL) structure to synergistically reinforce and toughen nanocomposites in the dilute range of nanofiller below 1 wt%. At a typical loading of 0.3 wt%, the BCL composite of graphene oxide (GO) and poly (vinyl alcohol, PVA) has a 8200 % toughness and a comparably reinforced hardness of the dispersed counterpart, accompanying with a 53 folds higher failure elongation that even exceeds that of pure PVA...

Several biomaterials, including natural polymers, are used to increase cellular interactions as an effective way to treat bone injuries. Chitosan (CS) is one of the most studied biocompatible natural polymers. Graphene oxide (GO) is a carbon-based nanomaterial capable of imparting desired properties to the scaffolds. In the present study, CS and GO were used for scaffold preparation. CS was extracted from the mycelium of the fungus Aspergillus niger . On the other hand, GO was synthesized using an improved Hummers-Offemann method and was characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Raman spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and dynamic light scattering (DLS)...
