Cellulose fiber (CF) paper is a low-cost, sustainable, and flexible substrate, which has gained increasing interest recently. Before practical usage, the functionalization of the pristine CF paper is indispensable to meet requirements of specific applications. Different from conventional surface modification or physical mixing methods, we report in situ growth of ultralong hydroxyapatite nanowires (HAPNWs) with lengths larger than 10 μm on the CF paper. HAPNWs are radially aligned on the surface...

Abstract Natural materials have enlightened us to assemble brittle building blocks into specific architectures with both high strength and toughness. As the main inorganic component of the bone and tooth, hydroxyapatite (HAP) materials have a high biocompatibility, but usually have a high brittleness. It is still a big challenge to artificially prepare biomaterials with the combination of high strength and high toughness, similar to natural materials constructed with brittle HAP building blocks....

Solar energy-driven interfacial water evaporation is a promising energy utilization technology in the field of seawater desalination and water purification. However, the accumulation of salt on the heating surface severely impairs the water evaporation performance and long-time stability. Herein, we demonstrate a new kind of photothermal paper comprising a high-temperature-resistant paper made from ultralong hydroxyapatite nanowires and glass fibers and black nickel oxide (NiO) nanoparticles for...

The direct transformation of external energy into mechanical work by the self-propelled motor inspires and promotes the development of miniaturized machines. Several strategies have been utilized to realize the self-driven motion, but in some cases multiple power sources are needed, and this would complicate the operation in diverse environments. In this regard, the dual-mode self-propelled system based on a single power source is highly desirable. In this work, single-light-actuated dual-mode p...

Abstract Solar energy-driven water evaporation is a promising technique for clean water regeneration to tackle the world-wide water scarcity problem. Previous studies have revealed the important role of the bilayer structure in the solar energy-driven water evaporation, the top layer is the photothermal material, and the bottom porous material is used for water transportation and heat insulation. Herein, a new kind of the bilayer aerogel composed of hydrophilic ultralong hydroxyapatite (HAP) nan...

: Security inks based on photoluminescent materials are mostly investigated for security applications, such as information encryption and decryption, anti-counterfeiting, and data storage. Although they are invisible to the naked eye under ambient light, they can be detected under ultraviolet or near-infrared light. Herein, a new kind of secret paper made from network-structured ultralong hydroxyapatite nanowires and cellulose fibers has been developed. White vinegar, a common cooking ingredient...

Abstract Information protection is particularly important for secure communication between parties, avoiding the leakage of secret information to unknown parties. Among various strategies used for information protection in the previous reports in the literature, security inks made from photoluminescent materials are the most widely investigated. The security inks suffer from the drawbacks such as lack of universality on various substrates. In this work, we provide a promising new complement to t...

Stimulus-responsive actuators that can respond to the external stimuli and convert external energy into dynamic movement behaviors are highly desired for many applications. Among various driving schemes, the Marangoni propulsion produced by the photothermal effect is promising for yielding stimulus-responsive motion in a contactless and switchable manner. However, challenges still remain, especially for the fluid drag and poor processability. Herein, a flexible, superhydrophobic, and phototherma...

: Efficient utilization of abundant solar energy for clean water generation is considered a sustainable and environment friendly approach to mitigate the global water crisis. For this purpose, this study reports a flexible fire-resistant photothermal paper by combining carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and fire-resistant inorganic paper based on ultralong hydroxyapatite nanowires (HNs) for efficient solar energy-driven water steam generation and water purification. Benefiting from the structural character...
