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 ...
Molecular simulation studies for the templated synthesis of ultrathin metal nanowires in zeolites
In the present work geometric optimizations, Metropolis Monte Carlo, and molecular dynamics simulations were done to study the feasibility of synthesizing Ni and Pt nanowires inside the pores of one dimensional zeolite ...
Atomic pair distribution study of the growth of Pt nanoparticles in zeolites
The Pair Distribution Function (PDF) is a total scattering method used to study the local structure of a material and yields a function in real space with peaks that represent the interatomic distances. In this work, we ...
Porous carbon-faujasite composites containing transition metals for aqueous phase adsorption applications
Pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) have emerged in surface water in concentration levels enough to categorize them as “emerging contaminants” due to a lack of efficient wastewater treatment plant removal ...
Synthesis and characterization of porous inorganic adsorbents for the removal of PPCPs via complexation and size exclusion principles
Pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) are considered emerging contaminants that present great challenges for their remediation from water systems. Unfortunately, traditional water treatment methods are not ...
DFT analysis on structure-property relationships of metal-substituted zeolites
Metal-modified zeolites have proven to be effective catalysts for various important reactions involving the transformation of biomass-derived molecules and the conversion of greenhouse gases, such as CO2 and CH4. In this ...
