Abstract
We introduce a general approach for synthesizing multicomponent metal-decorated crumpled reduced graphene oxide nanocomposites using a one-step, continuous flame-based process. Crumpled reduced graphene oxide balls (CGB) were produced from graphene oxide (GO) in a High Temperature Reducing Jet (HTRJ) reactor. Moreover, CGBs were simultaneously decorated with different transition metal nanoparticles, including cobalt (Co), nickel (Ni), iron (Fe), and palladium (Pd). Various metal alloy-decorated crumpled reduced graphene oxide balls (M-CGBs) including CoPd-, CoNi-, CoPdNi-, and CoNiFe-CGBs were successfully synthesized using a general recipe. The key advantage of the HTRJ system over common flame-based aerosol synthesis methods is the separation of flame and product formation zones, which allows production and/or reduction of nanomaterials that can be reduced by H2 in the presence of H2O. Nanomaterials are produced from aqueous precursors containing low-cost metal salts and dispersed GO. Electron microscopy and other characterization methods show the decoration of the CGBs with sub-4 nm diameter binary and ternary alloy, non-oxide transition metal nanoparticles of controlled compositions. The nanostructures made by this process can potentially be used as electrocatalysts for fuel cells, electrodes in batteries and supercapacitors, conductive inks for printed electronics, catalysts in wastewater treatment, and many other applications where a graphitized carbon-metal nanomaterial is needed.

Abstract A new concept for the synthesis of conductive metal nanoparticle inks (nano-inks) is introduced using a one-step continuous flame-based process. Bimetallic nickel (Ni)-silver (Ag) nanopowders are simultaneously produced and functionalized in a High Temperature Reducing Jet (HTRJ) reactor. The HTRJ process allows rapid aerosol (gas phase) formation of multicomponent metal nanoparticles with relatively high production rates from low-cost metal precursors. Octylamine, a volatile aliphatic ...

Abstract In the past decades, graphene has attracted much attention as the host material of photodetectors (PDs), owing to its fascinating mechanical property, ultrahigh carrier mobility and remarkable optical transparency. However, the intrinsic low light absorption of graphene affects its comprehensive application in PDs. Therefore, graphene-based PDs research has focused on hybrid system and optimized graphene structures to enhance photoabsorption. In order to combine the advantages of both a...

Abstract Mixed transition metal oxides (MTMOs) have been explored as attractive electrode materials for supercapacitors owing to their higher electronic conductivity and larger specific capacitance compared with simple transition metal oxides. Among MTMOs, cobalt-based binary metal oxides such as Fe-Co oxides have emerged as alternative electrode materials for supercapacitors because they have the advantages of low cost, natural abundance, and environmental friendliness. Recently, graphene-based...

But the presence of ascorbic acid could induce the reduction of oxTMB to TMB, resulting in a si...
