Hydrogen production is a key driver for sustainable and clean fuels used to generate electricity, which can be achieved through electrochemical splitting of water in alkaline solutions. However, the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) is kinetically sluggish in alkaline media. Therefore, it has become imperative to develop inexpensive and highly efficient electrocatalysts that can replace the existing expensive and scarce noble-metal-based catalysts. Herein, we report on the rational design of non...

Abstract There is a growing demand for flexible and wearable next-generation electronic devices that must be capable of bending and stretching under mechanical deformation. In this regard, energy harvesting technologies have immensely invested in organic and polymeric semiconducting materials due to their large-area synthesis, low cost, low toxicity, high flexibility, and tunable electronic properties. For example, electrically conductive π-conjugated polymers have been investigated in various t...

Organic electronics have emerged as a fascinating area of research and technology in the past two decades and are anticipated to replace classic inorganic semiconductors in many applications. Research on organic light-emitting diodes, organic photovoltaics, and organic thin-film transistors is already in an advanced stage, and the derived devices are commercially available. A more recent case is the organic electrochemical transistors (OECTs), whose core component is a conductive polymer in cont...

Saloplastics composed of Compacted Polyelectrolyte Complexes (COPECs) represent a promising strategy for assembling multifunctional and processable polymer matrices in a simple manner. Here, a comprehensive investigation of the potential application of saloplastics as ion reactors for designing catalysts has been performed. First the propensity of saloplastics to exchange and concentrate ions has been elucidated through investigating the influence of Na+ to Cu2+ cations exchange within COPECs as...

Electrochemical sensing performance of two-dimensional hexagonal boron nitride (2D h-BN) has traditionally been suppressed by their intrinsic electrical insulation and deficient electron transportation mechanism. However, the excellent electrocatalytic activity, high specific surface area, N- and B- active edges, structural defects, adjustable band gap through interaction with other nanomaterials, and chemical functionalization, makes 2D h-BN ideal for many sensing applications. Therefore, findi...

As a recent addition to the family of Van der Waals layered crystals, indium selenide (InSe) possesses unique optoelectronic and photonic properties, enabling high-performance electronic devices for broad applications. Nevertheless, the lithium storage behavior of InSe flakes is thus largely unexplored due to its low electronic conductivity and challenges associated with its exfoliation. Here, we prepare few-layered InSe flakes through liquid-phase exfoliation of wet-chemistry-synthesized layere...

Engineering of thermoelectric materials through hybridization with nanoparticles has been proved effective to boost their thermoelectric efficiency by providing the means to decouple thermal and electrical transport phenomena. Here, we report the synthesis of p-type Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3/X wt% Sb2O3 (X = 0, 1, 2, 4, 6) nanocomposites, in which the Sb2O3 nanoparticles are dispersed mainly at the grain boundaries of the Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3 matrix. It is shown that incorporation of up to 4 wt% Sb2O3 into the mat...
