Ab initio constrained crystal-chemical Rietveld refinement of Ca10(VxP1-xO4)6F2 apatites
Extraction of reliable bond distances and angles for Ca10(VxP1-O4)6F2 apatites using standard Rietveld refinement with Cu Kα X-ray powder data was significantly impaired by large ...
Twinned Zn2TiO4 spinel nanowires using ZnO nanowires as a template
Ternary twinned Zn2TiO4spinel nanowires are formed by a solid-state reaction between Ti and ZnO from an amorphous Ti-coated ZnO core/shell nanowire structure. The ZnO nanowires are used as templates to spatially confine ...
Novel porous anatase TiO2 nanorods and their high lithium electroactivity
We demonstrated a simple approach for the synthesis of a kind of novel porous anatase TiO2 nanorods. The method is based on a reaction in composite-hydroxide eutectic system and normal atmosphere without using an organic ...
K10[Co4(H2O)2(B-α-SiW9O34H)2]·21H2O : a sandwich polyoxometalate based on the magnetically interesting element cobalt
The magnetism of a sandwich tetracobalt(II) substituted tungstosilicate K10[Co4(H2O)2(B-α-SiW9O34H)2] · 21H2O has been studied based on an isotropic Heisenberg model supplemented by a zero-field splitting term.
On the fabrication of resistor-shaped ZnO nanowires
A novel morphology of zinc oxide (ZnO) consisting of resistor-shaped nanowires connected “in-series” has been synthesized by a vapor phase transport method in the presence of water and copper. Scanning electron microscopy ...
Hydrothermal synthesis of CeO2 nano-particles
Nano-crystalline particles of CeO2 have been synthesized via a low temperature hydrothermal synthesis process. Two types of precursors were studied—cerium hydroxide and ceria acetate. The precursors were adjusted to a basic ...
Synthesis and electrical transport of novel channel-structured β-AgVO3
Novel microelectrodes or microsensors may be based in future on the extraordinary single-crystalline, channel-structured β-AgVO3 compound (see image) created by a simple hydrothermal process. The synthesis and electron ...
Application of layered double hydroxides for removal of oxyanions : a review
Layered double hydroxides (LDHs) are lamellar mixed hydroxides containing positively charged main layers and undergoing anion exchange chemistry. In recent years, many studies have been devoted to investigating the ability ...
Nanostructured single-crystalline twin disks of zinc oxide
Nanostructural twin disks of zinc oxide with high yield were fabricated by vapor-phase transport using a mixture of zinc oxide, indium oxide, and graphite ...
