Graphene-based materials : synthesis, characterization, properties, and applications
Graphene, a two-dimensional, single-layer sheet of sp2 hybridized carbon atoms, has attracted tremendous attention and research interest, owing to its exceptional physical properties, such as high electronic conductivity, ...
Binary-phased nanoparticles for enhanced thermoelectric properties
Binary-phased PbTe-PtTe2 nanoparticles are synthesized by co-precipitation in a chemical process. These nanoparticles show much enhanced power factors as compared to that of pure PbTe nanoparticles, which may give impact ...
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 ...
Fabrication of core−shell structure of M@C (M=Se, Au, Ag2Se) and transformation to yolk−shell structure by electron beam irradiation or vacuum annealing
Selenium @ carbon core−shell spheres have been synthesized via a simple one-step hydrothermal carbonization process using sucrose and sodium selenite as precursors. Metal selenide or noble metal, e.g. Ag2Se or Au, can be ...
In situ synthesis of metal nanoparticles on single-layer graphene oxide and reduced graphene oxide surfaces
A straightforward one-step chemical method to in situ synthesis of Ag nanoparticles (Ag NPs) on single-layer graphene oxide (GO) and reduced graphene oxide (r-GO) surfaces is proposed. After simply heating the single-layer ...
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 ...
