CO2 adsorption in nickel based metal organic framework Ni-DABCO: A density functional theory and grand canonical Monte Carlo study
The continuous emissions of greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide (CO2), are generating concerns over the negative effects they are having on the planet. The main goal of this project is to understand the adsorption ...
Sulfonated polymer metal nanocomposite membranes with bacterial disinfection activity in water
This study describes the synthesis and characterization of sulfonated poly(styreneisobutylene- styrene) (SIBS) polymer nanocomposite membranes, which show antibacterial properties useful for the inactivation of Enterococci ...
Targeting PDMS hydrophobicity for study of small hydrophobic molecule-driven cell responses in vitro
Poly(-dimethyl siloxane) (PDMS) has been the main polymer employed in micro and nano scale devices. Its chemical and physical properties are ideal for molding and soft patterning of microfluidic devices. Despite the great ...
DFT study on the effect of aluminum atom distribution in zn-exchanged mfi zeolites for methane c-h bond activation
The direct conversion of methane to useful chemicals is economically attractive owing to the vast availability of natural gas resources. Nevertheless, a fundamental limitation is the chemical inertness and stability of the ...
Nanostructured bimetallic copper-gallium catalysts for the production of methanol from carbon dioxide
The hydrogenation of carbon dioxide (CO2) to methanol is an alternative to mitigate the problems caused by global warming. Industrially, methanol is produced by hydrogenation of CO2/CO over heterogeneous catalyst Cu/ZnO/Al2O3. ...
