标题: Hierarchical self-assembled nanomaterials with high activity and stability
Self-assembled nanomaterials, which are formed from interatomic and intermolecular interactions, may represent building blocks in the 21st century. The most significant problems with the applications of these nanomaterials have been property changes over time duo to poor stability. Recently advances in self-assembly technique enabled precise control synthesis of nanomaterials, which has significant impacts in the development of self-assembled nanomaterials.Herein, we present our recent work on design of a series of self-assembled hierarchical nanomaterials at micro/nano scale, which their activity and stability can be greatly enhanced. Firstly, hierarchical micro-meso-macroporous materials with zeolite architectureshave been designed and synthesized by using self-assembly method. These materials exhibit high activity and high stability in catalysis, which can be attributed to the unique and stable hierarchically porous structure. Then, metal nanocrystals have been stabilized and encapsulated in a unique “one particle@one cell” structure by the viscosity-adjusting method using mesocellular foam. Metal nanocrystals in mesocellular foam exhibit high activity, high stability and high durability for oxygen reduction reaction. Furthermore, we also succeed to use self-assembly method for cell protection. Living cells with nanoporousbiohybrid shellscan be rational designed. The self-assembled biohybrid shells endow the cells with enhanced stability and extra functionalities. It is believed that our methods could be useful for the preparation and stabilization of nanostructured materials with multiple functionality.
