Three dimensional molybdenum oxide/polyaniline hybrid nanosheet networks with outstanding optical and electrochemical properties

Abstract

3D MoO3/PANI hybrid nanosheet networks were fabricated via hydrothermal, freeze-drying and electropolymerization methods. The structure, morphology, optical and electrochemical properties of the hybrid material were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and electrochemical measurements. It was found that the conductivity of the 3D MoO3 nanosheet networks was enormously enhanced by introducing the PANI. The 3D MoO3/PANI hybrid nanosheet networks show the complementary dual-electrochromic effect (ranging from light yellow to purple then dark blue), fast switching speed of bleached and colored states (0.9 and 1.0 s, respectively), superior coloration efficiency and better cycling stability. The results demonstrate that optical and electrochemical properties of 3D MoO3/PANI hybrid nanosheet networks were improving than that of 3D MoO3 nanosheet networks. The unique inorganic-organic hybrid nanosheet networks can be used as an effective electrode material in optical-electrochemical field.
