    Abstract

    NiO sheets make sense! Large yields of hexagonal mesoporous NiO nanosheets are synthesized without the use of structure-directing agents. The NiO nanosheets show a reliable response to a low concentration of NO 2 down to the ppm level, and satisfy the requirements for actual applications in environmental monitoring (see graphic).
