In-situ electrochemically passivated photoanodes show higher photoelectrochemical performance and outstanding stability for about 100 hours
This work presents an industrially scalable method to controllably engineer the interfaces of semiconductors–electrolytes with precious metal-free defective hematite-based co-catalysts for sustainable photoelectrochemical solar-to-fuel conversion applications.
MXene-based nano-bio device for capturing, sensing, and filtering the Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria
This device not only presents a nano-platform for E. coli sensing in a wide dynamic range of 101–108 CFU/mL and a low detection limit of c.a. 10 CFU/mL, but also provides a nano filter to remove E.coli from water. Therefore, this work suggests carbohydrate functionalized MXenes as promising candidates for water sanitation and environmental protection.
