    A novel kind of flexible wireless pressure-sensing device is reported based on a chip-type ionic alginate hydrogel (IAH) microsphere, which is sandwiched by a folded polyethylene terephthalate film with a continuous silver pattern as both antenna and electrode through a stack of double-sided tape as bonding frame.

  2. High-Performance Flexible All-Solid-State Supercapacitors Based on Ultralarge Graphene Nanosheets and Solvent-Exfoliated Tungsten Disulfide Nanoflakes

    A novel free-standing ultralarge graphene nanosheets/solvent-exfoliated tungsten disulfide nanoflakes composite paper exhibits excellent mechanical stability, flexibility, and electrical conductivity. It can be used as high-performance electrode materials for flexible all-solid-state supercapacitors. The highest areal-specific capacitance of 312.4 mF cm−2 can be achieved with a high capacity retention of ≈88.1% after 5000 charge–discharge cycles.

  3. Graphene Conformal-Coated Ceramics in Arbitrary Shape Targeting Smart Widgets

    Conformal coating of graphene in any arbitrary-shape, even 3D irregular shapes, is critical to the surface-functionalized structural materials in their actual form for practical applications. As demonstrated by ceramics, graphene conformal-coated ceramics (GCCs) are successfully obtained. More significantly, GCCs find a broad range of real applications by enabling the low-cost construction of heating devices, electroluminescent devices, and touchpads.

  4. Engineering Elastic ZIF-8-Sponges for Oil–Water Separation

    He Zhu, Qi Zhang, Bo-Geng Li and Shiping Zhu

    Mechanically stable 3D ZIF-8-sponge is fabricated via a rapid and straightforward method. The continuous ZIF-8 layer on sponge skeleton remains intact after compression tests. The obtained ZIF-8-sponge can be used as a convenient absorbent for fast oil spills removal with good recoverability and recyclability.

  5. Free Form Growth of Carbon Nanotube Microarchitectures on Stainless Steel Controlled via Laser-Stimulated Catalyst Formation

    Hendrik Reinhardt, Christoph Hellmann, Philipp Nürnberger, Stefan Kachel and Norbert Hampp

    Site-selective carbon nanotube (CNT) growth on stainless steel is achieved by laser-stimulated self-organization of highly granular transition metal oxide precursors that transform into CNT catalysts upon thermal reduction thus enabling the fabrication of free-form CNT microarchitectures with standard chemical vapor deposition equipment. The process facilitates control over CNT location and height as well as the alignment of CNT bundles.
