• Bioinspired coupling of inorganic layered nanomaterials with marine polysaccharides for efficient aqueous exfoliation and smart actuating hybrids. Zong, L., Li, M., & Li, C. (2017). Advanced Materials, 29(10), 1604691.
    WS2 among the TMD family was found to be exfoliated with maximum effiiency by the assistance of lowcost marine SA; SA among a series of polysaccharides could exfoliate WS2 with maximum effiiency. This perfect couple originates from strong interactions of H-bonding and coordination between SA and WS2, where an unprec......

    High-efficiency solar harvest and solar-thermal conversion have been targeted in modern sustainable energy science for diverse potential applications. However, broad applications with inorganic nanomaterials as solarnanoheaters have suffered from low conversion efficiency, potential noxiousness and complicated synth......
  • Evaporation-induced sintering of liquid metal droplets with biological nanofibrils for flexible conductivity and responsive actuation X Li, M Li, J Xu, J You, Z Yang, C Li, Nature Communications, 2019, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-019-11466-5
    Liquid metal (LM) droplets show the superiority in coalescing into integral liquid conductors applicable in flexible and deformable electronics. However, the large surface tension, oxide shells and poor compatibility with most other materials may prevent spontaneous coalescence of LM droplets and/or hybridisa......
