  • A MoS 2/graphene hybrid aerogel synthesized with two-dimensional MoS 2 sheets coating a high surface area graphene aerogel scaffold is characterized and used for ultrasensitive NO 2 detection. The combination of graphene and MoS 2 leads to improved sensing properties with the graphene scaffold providing high specific surface area and high electrical and thermal conductivity and the single to few-layer MoS2 sheets providing high sensitivity and selectivity to NO 2. The hybrid aerogel is integrated onto a low-power microheater platform to probe the gas sensing performance. At room temperature, the sensor exhibits an ultralow detection limit of 50 ppb NOmore » 2. By heating the material to 200 °C, the response and recovery times to reach 90% of the final signal decrease to <1 min, while retaining the low detection limit. The MoS 2/graphene hybrid also shows good selectivity for NO 2 against H 2 and CO, especially when compared to bare graphene aerogel. The unique structure of the hybrid aerogel is responsible for the ultrasensitive, selective, and fast NO 2 sensing. The improved sensing performance of this hybrid aerogel also suggests the possibility of other 2D material combinations for further sensing applications.« less
  • In this manuscript we have successfully synthesized a large scale 3D dendritic α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} hierarchical structure via a hydrothermal reaction. The crystallinity, composition, purity, morphology of the synthesized α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} are characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), field emission scanning electron microscopic (FESEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopic (EDS). FESEM image reveals that the individual α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} dendrite consists of a long central trunk with secondary and tertiary branches. For electrochemical H{sub 2}O{sub 2} sensing we have carried out cyclic voltammetry (CV), amperometric i-t measurement. It has been found that the current density vs. H{sub 2}O{sub 2} concentrationmore » calibration curve is linear in nature. The present study reveals that the dendritic α-Fe{sub 2}O{sub 3} hierarchical structure exhibits very sensitive electrochemical sensing capability towards H{sub 2}O{sub 2} reduction.« less
  • Using density functional theory calculations with van der Waals corrections, we investigated how the interlayer orientation affects the structure and electronic properties of MoS{sub 2}-graphene bilayer heterostructures. Changing the orientation of graphene with respect to MoS{sub 2} strongly influences the type and the value of the electronic bandgap in MoS{sub 2}, while not significantly altering the binding energy between the layers or the interlayer spacing. We show that the physical origin of this tunable bandgap arises from variations in the S–S interplanar distance (MoS{sub 2} thickness) with the interlayer orientation, variations which are caused by electron transfer away from themore » Mo–S bonds.« less
  • Graphical abstract: - Highlights: • First report on decorating MoS{sub 2} nanosheet with Cu nanoparticles by chemical reduction. • Cu nanoparticles were uniformly decorated on MoS{sub 2} nanosheet. • Glucose biosensor based on copper nanoparticles-MoS{sub 2} nanosheet hybrid is fabricated. • The biosensor exhibits high sensitivity. - Abstract: For the first time, Cu nanoparticles were evenly decorated on MoS{sub 2} nanosheet by chemical reduction. The as-prepared Cu-MoS{sub 2} hybrid was characterized by atomic force microscope (AFM), Raman spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and then used to fabricate a non-enzymatic glucose sensor. The performance of our sensor wasmore » investigated by cyclic voltammetry and amperometric measurement in alkaline media. Electrochemical tests showed that Cu-MoS{sub 2} hybrid exhibited synergistic electrocatalytic activity on the oxidation of glucose with a high sensitivity of 1055 μA mM{sup −1} cm{sup −2} and a linear range up to 4 mM.« less
