    The synthesis of Na2Fe[Fe(CN)6] as cathode hosts for lithium–sulfur (Li–S) battery is reported. This open framework can store sulfur and acts as a polysulfide diffusion inhibitor based on the Lewis acid–base bonding effect for high-performance Li–S batteries. Li–S batteries based on this concept exhibit high specific capacity, good cycling stability, and superior rate capability.

    An electrostatic-driven exfoliation strategy is demonstrated for the first time to directly and conveniently cleave WO3 powder into atomically thin WO3 nanosheets with improved dispersity and stability for enhanced properties (the effective exfoliation is also extended to prepare stable black-phosphorus nanosheets). Furthermore, simultaneous exfoliation and hybridization of WO3 and MoS2 nanosheets are readily achieved to create hybrid WO3/MoS2 nanosheets.

  5. Photoresponsive Smart Coloration Electrochromic Supercapacitor
