Upon contact with water, under a variety of conditions, C60 spontaneously forms a stable aggregate with nanoscale dimensions (d = 25-500 nm), termed here "nano-C60". The color, hydrophobicity, and reactivity of individual C60 are substantially altered in this aggregate form. Herein, we provide conclusive lines of evidence demonstrating that in solution(More)
While the reactivity of C60 has been described in a variety of organic solvents, little information is available regarding aqueous-based reactions due to solubility limitations. In this study, a reaction between C60, as a nanoscale suspension, and dissolved ozone in the aqueous phase was investigated. Findings indicate a facile reaction occurs, resulting in(More)
Anatase TiO(2) nanoparticles with an average size of 16 nm were synthesized via a modified sol-gel method and were employed to degrade quinoline under UV irradiation (λ=365 nm). The influence of reaction parameters such as TiO(2) dosage, initial quinoline concentration and pH was investigated. Under the optimized reaction condition, 91.5% photodegradation(More)
