p-type Bi0.4Sb1.6Te3 nanocomposites with enhanced figure of merit
We report enhanced figure of merit, ZT, in p-type Bi0.4Sb1.6Te3 nanocomposites fabricated by a rapid and high throughput method of mixing nanostructured Bi0.4Sb1.6Te3 particles obtained through melt spinning with micronsized ...
Synthesis of porous NiO nanocrystals with controllable surface area and their application as supercapacitor electrodes
We report a facile way to grow various porous NiO nanostructures including nanoslices, nanoplates, and nanocolumns, which show a structure-dependence in their specific charge capacitances. The formation of controllable ...
Generation of dual patterns of metal oxide nanomaterials based on seed-mediated selective growth
A facile route for the generation of the dual patterns of metal oxide nanomaterials, for example, ZnO and CuO, has been developed by printing the oxide seeds through a combination of microcontact printing (μCP) and ...
Controlled synthesis of Sb nanostructures and their conversion to CoSb3 nanoparticle chains for li-ion battery electrodes
Nanostructured Sb was prepared through a simple polyol process. Either Sb nanoparticles (Sb NP) or nanowires (Sb NW) were obtained by adjusting the concentration of surfactant. Electrochemical analyses revealed that the ...
Synthesis and characterization of FePt nanoparticles and FePt nanoparticle/SiO2-matrix composite films
Superparamagnetic face-centered cubic (fcc) FePt nanoparticles were synthesized using a polyol process. The effect of reaction temperature and molar ratio of Fe(CO)5 to Pt(acac)2 on the structure, composition and morphology ...
Polyphenylene dendrimer-templated in situ construction of inorganic–organic hybrid rice-shaped architectures
A novel dendrimer-templating method for the synthesis of CuO nanoparticles and the in situ construction of ordered inorganic–organic CuO–G2Td(COOH)16rice-shaped architectures (RSAs) with analogous monocrystalline structures ...
