Abstract Three-dimensional carbon honeycombs (3D C-honeycombs) are considered as a promising matrix material for new composites, while their mechanical behaviors under complex stress status remain unclear. Here, shear response of 3D C-honeycombs is systematically investigated with molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and mechanical analysis. Two deformation modes are observed for 3D C-honeycombs under in-plane and out-of-plane shear loading. A mechanical model is proposed to describe the deformation of 3D C-honeycombs under different shear loading, and agrees well with the MD simulations. Under in-plane shear loading, the initial elastic deformation is dominated by distortion of hexagon structures, shear modulus increases as increasing shear strain, and the tension of side walls leads to fracture. Under out-of-plane shear loading, the structure of 3D C-honeycombs can remain stable until fracture regardless of side wall buckling, and the tensile stress concentration at junctions gives rise to fracture. For both the two modes, the junction type has a negligible effect on shear strength of 3D C-honeycombs. The stability of junctions plays a dominant role in the shear response of 3D C-honeycombs, and thus the superb mechanical properties of graphene can be largely inherited by the 3D C-honeycombs.

Abstract N doped carbon nanosheet and B N co-doped carbon (BNC) nanosheet are first prepared through exfoliation of carbon of Schiff based covalent organic frameworks (COFs) under ultrasound using sodium lignin sulfonate as the intercalation agent and modifier. Then poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA)/BNC nanocomposite with enhanced thermal oxidation stability, good mechanical performances and enhanced flame retardancy has been prepared through solution blending. The temperature at 5 wt% weight loss and ...

Abstract Multiwalled carbon nanotube-dispersed polyamide 66 nanocomposites (PA66/MWCNTs) were fabricated by melt-mixing pretreated MWCNTs and PA66, and the effects of pretreating techniques and types of pretreating materials were investigated. The non-fluffy method (NFM) and the dry-coating method (DCM) were studied to determine the effects of pretreatment techniques. The tensile properties were enhanced by the NFM. However, the DCM improved the stability of the process, which greatly decreased ...

Abstract The high gas barrier property of a rubber composite is of great significance for reducing the exhaust gas emissions due to tire rolling resistance and hence the contribution this factor makes to environmental protection. Enhanced covalent interfaces and crosslinked networks are crucial to the gas barrier property of rubber composites. In this research, γ-mercaptopropyltriethoxysilane (MPS) modified GO (MGO)/styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) composites were prepared by a synergetic strategy...

Abstract Development of strong and tough biopolymer materials with favorable conductive properties is highly desirable and remains a great challenge in current scientific research. In this study, a novel strategy is designed to prepare a conductive plant protein-based films through the integration of functional graphene oxide (GO) into a hyperbranched network. The process was based on the Fe(III) ion-triggered simultaneous polymerization of dopamine and pyrrole. The incorporation of conductive G...

Abstract Developing clean energy technologies has become a very important topic for research communities worldwide. An alternative to fossil fuels, hydrogen-based fuels display their own weaknesses such as the poisoning of the precious metal catalyst which controls the reaction. Thus, we present an investigation relying on non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) of a complex multi-layer graphene separation membrane prototype, with its interlayer distance kept constant by graphene walls and the...

Abstract Boron nitride nanosheet/copper (BNNS/Cu) nanocomposites were fabricated using a molecular-level mixing process. This process was facilitated by electrostatic interactions between negatively charged functional groups on the BNNSs and Cu metal precursor ions. The mixing process induced the formation of oxygen (O)-mediated bonding between BNNSs and the Cu matrix, which enabled enhanced dispersion of BNNSs and interfacial bonding with the Cu matrix. The mechanical properties of the resultin...

Ratiometric luminescent oxygen sensing based on dual fluorescence and phosphorescence emission in a single matrix is highly desirable, yet the designed synthesis remains challenging. Silver-chalcogenolate-cluster-based metal-organic frameworks that combine the advantages of silver clusters and metal-organic frameworks have displayed unique luminescent properties. Herein, we rationally introduce −NH2 groups on the linkers of a silver-chalcogenolate-cluster-based metal-organic framework (Ag12bpy-N...

The excellent mechanical properties of carbon nanofibers bring promise for energy-related applications. Through in silico studies and continuum elasticity theory, here we show that the ultra-thin carbon nanothreads-based bundles exhibit a high mechanical energy storage density. Specifically, the gravimetric energy density is found to decrease with the number of filaments, with torsion and tension as the two dominant contributors. Due to the coupled stresses, the nanothread bundle experiences fra...

This work summarizes recent progress on the thermal transport properties of three-dimensional (3D) nanostructures, with an emphasis on experimental results. Depending on the applications, different 3D nanostructures can be prepared or designed to either achieve a low thermal conductivity for thermal insulation or thermoelectric devices, or a high thermal conductivity for thermal interface materials used in the continuing miniaturization of electronics. A broad range of 3D nanostructures have bee...
