Abstract

New mesoporous β-Co(OH)2/brilliant blue G (G250) hybrid hierarchical structures constructed by thin mesocrystal nanosheets can be synthesized by a one-step refluxing process under the synergistic effect of CTAB and G250 (see Figure). This approach opens up an avenue to access new novel inorganic/dye hybrid materials with hierarchical structures for pigment and electrocatalytic application.
