Synthesis of platinum nanostructures using zeolites
Due to their outstanding and tunable electronic properties, platinum nanowires have the potential to be used in the development of advanced devices. The quantum confinement effect of the electrons and the increased surface ...
Processing and characterization of nematic co-polymer Phba/Pet nanocomposite films via hot-melt extrusion
In this research work, the effect of particle shape (i.e. rod-like, spherical and platellet) and concentration on the liquid crystalline structure of poly (4-benzoic acidco-ethylene terephthalate) (PHBA/PET) was evaluated ...
Rheology and gelation of physical polymer gels
The discovery of new potent and water-insoluble drugs has emphasized the need for novel drug-delivery systems and personalized dosification. Biopolymers solutions are an alternative over conventional methods since they can ...
Synthesis and characterization of modified mesoporous silicates for the adsorption of pharmaceutical and personal care products
PPCPs have been recently identified as emerging contaminants due to their persistence in our potable water supply and aquatic systems. Unfortunately, traditional water treatment methods are inadequate for the removal of ...
Silicoaluminophosphate nanoporous materials for carbon dioxide adsorption at low concentration
The incorporation of extraframework Sr2+ and Ba2+ cations onto silicoaluminophosphate (SAPO-34) zeolitic materials has been proven to influence their adsorptive properties. In this study, three approaches were employed to ...
Observation of enhanced Raman scattering as a result of coupling between localized plasmons and surface polariton waves associated with metal-semiconductor nanocomposites
We report the observation of enhanced Raman scattering as a result of the coupling between the localized surface plasmon (LSP) of metal nanoparticles (NP) and the surface plasmon polariton (SPP) associated with a thin metal ...
